Bill, I've read a lot of good reviews about CyberLink too. No one I know likes Pinnacle. I've switched a few users to Vegas Movie Studio and they have been very happy with it.
What I highly recommend is to download the trial versions of different programs (one at a time please) and give it a lengthy evaluation. Then and only then can you make an informed decision.
