Google Apps for Linux Please

Published: 18 May 2006

I’m a huge fan of Google because it helps me in so many ways and the fact that they continue to churn out FREE applications and API’s for almost anyone to use. I’ve come to the realization that I only have one complaint (other than not hiring me) with Google. You’ll notice that I said “almost anyone” above because not all of Google’s applications can run on a Linux distribution. Although Microsoft still has a vast majority of market share when it comes to the desktop space and therefor probably not a sound business decision to port over to Linux, but it’d sure be nice to know you can run any Google app on Linux.

Update: Apparently, Google listened to my plea and has released a linux version of Picassa!
