Hey guys, I'm relatively new to web video production so wanted the opinion of web video editing buffs here
Here's the type of web-video I'm after:
(fun video introducing Groupon's features)
Millionaire Society (fun video presentation for work-from-home enthusiasts)
Let's assume I have no Mac.
Precisely what are the most cost-effective PC (Windows 7 or XP) tools you would need to produce video presentations of at least the same QUALITY as those - as if I had a Mac?
Any extra hardware that's needed beyond a simple microphone?
From some guys, I keep hearing that you need a Mac.
This is assuming you have all the still-image graphics needed ready.
Thanks so much for the insight.

The OS X wiki backs up deadrats on this one.

FreeBSD and NetBSD are open source variants of BSD Unix, AT&T Unix and others.
