Best (Cheap) Video Editing Software?

I have yet to find a cheap Kodak Zi8 to shoot videos and all that jazz, but I would still like to be prepared with the software. What Windows video software, besides WLMM, do you Vergers recommend? Me being the budget minded tech nerd, I would preferably buy software for less than 100 dollars... I am not part of the 1%. Sigh...

FIRE AWAY!
