They do ads, but no spyware.
They probably can't free Picasa, due to not actually owning all of it.
Still, it's a loss-leader for them, they give it away to build goodwill essentially.
Frankly I think they would have been better off saving the money they spent on it, and just doing a windows port of digikam. They probably could have added any features it might lack much cheaper than going the route they have.
