A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
Maybe they should ask Audacity coders how to produce multi-platform software. I guess Picasa will stay away from my desktop until it becomes native.

I'll check out picasa and give it a whirl, but I suspect its peecee heritage will reveal itself in awkward and irritating little quirks...

So, this won't run on my primary machine even if I wanted it. Which I don't believe I do. I know some people are big fans of the program (including my father, who very well may wind up using it on his linux-x86 box just because he's used to it and comfortable with it) but there's already perfectly good software for this on linux like digikam. Real software, source code, that really runs on linux, rather than an opaque binary (mushware) that only runs on a subset of linux systems. And does Picasa actually do anything that digikam doesn't?
