That's odd Paul. I'm guessing it's an artifact of the virtual machine. Maybe you don't have enough ram dedicated to the VM? On my Mint 5 KDE hard drive install, as well as on all other Linux flavors I have installed since Picasa 2.7 was released, Picasa runs as fast and as smooth as it does on my Windows XP machine. The earlier release of Picasa for Linux, was slow, and lacked many popular features, but with version 2.7 they have achieved parity with the Windows version, and it works very well.
