Yes, Shotcut now replaces OpenShot as the default video editor on Linux Lite 6.2.

OpenShot gets the place because it didn't work well with Ubuntu 22.04, and without a utility like this, users would have to look for one on their own.

Shotcut is undoubtedly a good video editor. So, it should be a good option.
