No it's not really "Linux" advocacy, it's just free software advocacy.
Linux is almost a synonym for free software in general, so I don't think
this is off topic at all.
You do, however, point out some valid inaccuracies in the article. Most
free software is not specific to one operating system, so nothing there
is specific to Linux, even less so Ubuntu. Also I don't like the way the
author says "Linux itself doesn’t offer any default or built-in video
editor application". Of course it doesn't, Linux is a kernel. Maybe GNU
will adopt a video editor one day, though.
