For the last few days I have been searching for a good video editor. And i have come across Final Cut Pro X. The problem is that I am not using Mac OS so I can't use this video editor. Does anyone know if there is a Windows equivalent for that programme?
Thanks! Kaloyan Mihalev

Sony Vegas is the only thing that comes close in that price range.
Otherwise I use Premiere Pro CS6 and I prefer it 100 times over to FCP X, but that's just my opinion. I hope you get the opportunity to use as many as possible and make an informed decision!

Pretty much, your best option for a professional video editor on Windows is either Adobe Premiere Pro or Avid Media Composer.
You could always buy a Mac off of Craigslist and spend the $300 for FCP X, since those two editors on Windows are expensive.

There are some that are free that you can try out that goes for windows and Linux I was doing a google search that may help you out. I haven't done any video editing at all over here. But still it is better than nothing at all.
The first one is http://www.openmovieeditor.org/ And it is free for both windows and Linux operating systems.
And here is another list under the wiki which gives freeware, They show it as open source, Freeware and commercial use or buy the software and it is yours.
The ones from the wiki pages you're going to have to try and see which one suites your needs or comes close to Final cut pro 10 or the Adobe inequivalent.

Not really... I mean, of course, there are some great editors for Windows. Premiere is good, but much more expensive if you aren't a student, and I can't say much about Vegas (never used it), but I know a lot of people like it.
As far as equivalence goes, FCPX is very unique in terms of UI and workflow. But if you don't have a Mac, you'll have to use something else. There's no true equivalent to it, but there are definitely some good programs out there.

Or, you could run a Live boot Linux, (I like Fedora) and one of the many free linux video editors. Total cost, $0. I like Kino. (http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/7-free-open-source-video-editor-for-linux/) And Avid DV for windows has free demo, I think.
