go for Adobe Premiere, it's really easy to use, and i have used some mega expensive pro ones too, I will be going Final Cut Pro HD with a Mac G5, but Premiere 6.5, 7.0 and Premiere Pro are more than what most people need, and as i said very easy to learn. A lot of the transitions are useless, but many to choose from. They handle widescreen and 4:3 and pillarbox and letterbox when using scenes in the opposite aspect ratio too.
Adobe Premier is one of the top ones, but expensive, if you were to buy. Windows Movie Maker not too bad, but doesn't give you many options, and shit for importing and exportings different file types. (Overall, not too impressed with Movie Maker)
What did impress me was Pinnacle Studio 9! Use nothing else but now. Supports many formats, got good tech support. Supports things such as DVD exporting, DVD Authroing, Surround Sound and so on. Retails at $250. It surprisingly pakced with features and easy to use.
