    No Picasa 3.5 for Linux

    ...

    The new version of Picasa also features an improved upload process that allows for greater control over which photos get uploaded and shared during importation from a camera.

    Although Google released Picasa 3.0 for Linux, a company spokesperson said that version 3.5 is only being released for Mac and Windows due to low adoption of Picasa 3.0 among Linux users.

    I don't get their Linux strategy.
    Isn't Google launching a Linux-based OS?
    No Picasa support for their own new OS?

    Picasa 3.0 uses wine. I wonder why it got a low adoption...

    Personally I never found a better alternative, even though it's based on Wine.

    This news sucks big-time!

    Honestly, it was wine powered, it was closed source, and I personally don't see the point. If it was for Linux, then why power it by wine. Lazy google devs. Honestly, it would be the same installing it on WINE.

    This sucks, because Picasa is great on Windows. F-Spot and Digikam are pretty good (Digikam > F-Spot) they are not quite as polished.

    Maybe it's time to see if I can help F-Spot any (suggestions more than actual coding though there is a better chance I could contribute Mono code than anything else).

    Honestly! Picasa on Linux ran on Wine! This doesn't "suck". Just download WINE and Picasa for windows >.>
