Google Google and CodeWeavers are working together to bring Google's popular Windows Picasa photo editing and sharing program to Linux. The program is now in a limited beta test. If this program is successful, other Google applications will be following it to the Linux desktop, sources say. The Linux Picasa implementation includes the full feature set of the Windows Picasa 2.x software. It is not, strictly speaking, a port of Picasa to Linux. Instead, Linux Picasa combines Windows Picasa code and Wine technology to run Windows Picasa on Linux. This, however, will be transparent to Linux users, when they download, install, and run the free program on their systems.

Don't take it as a "You're wrong!" post but... I would REALLY like to see some data to back up this statement.... REALLY... I'm a linux user at 99.99% of my time (except for some MMORPG needs) and would LOVE to have this data to back up my own market share discussions.

Care to present a link?
