Google stops #Picasa
We launched a WINE-based version of Picasa for Linux in 2006 as a Google Labs project. As we continue to enhance Picasa, it has become difficult to maintain parity on the Linux version. So today, we're deprecating Picasa for Linux and will not be maintaining it moving forward. Users who have downloaded and installed older versions of Picasa for Linux can continue to use them, though we won't be making any further updates.
Okay, it's only a WINE application and I didn't used it. But a good example how fast a company can abandon a well-known Linux version of there software.
