In a previous entry, I mentioned that Google had promised to do a WINE port of Picasa to Linux. According to Ubuntu Blog (and just about every other tech news source in the world), Google has finally come through. That’s right, Picasa on Linux! I’ve already downloaded the .deb that Ubuntu Blog links to and used dpkg to install it. And I am pleasantly surprised at how smooth Picasa is working so far. It’s currently importing my massive photo collection, but I’ve been playing around viewing, sorting and searching for pics. It all works, better than expected.
