Picasa 3 Beta Now For Linux

Are you a Linux user and want to run Picasa but can't? Then your wait is over. Google released a Linux port of Picasa's latest version. The software reportedly utilizes portions of Wine to function, so it wouldn't be accurate to call it an actual “port”. As a result, there are a few features missing in this release due to Picasa relying on certain Windows components.

Picasa 3 Beta is also available for Windows now, which is no surprise, but not for the Mac. Is this some sort of trend setting at Google, let's remember that the company's month-old Chrome browser remains at large a Windows-only application.
