Accessing photos on picasa

The latest version of Picasa doesn't seem to be accessible except through Mac or Windoze. Confused Any ideas ?

I think I have them downloaded on a zip file, which ubuntu software would be the least complicated to use?
I clicked to find those recommended...I'm feeling a bit daunted

Sad

Either that, or how much would it cost to get Windoze (what version?) on my laptop? I'd only need it for Picasa, my Garmin and reading the cd that came with my Olympus camera.
I don't want the laptop brain too clogged up...or mine!

What version of Windows does Picasa claim to need to run?

XP/Vista/7

Garmin says
windows 2000 or newer,32 MB ram, 2MBfree disk space, adobe acrobat reader software 6.0or newer

Vista will cost you your soul. XP is pennies, I imagine, off eBay, if you can find it.

Are they? Or are they from sellers who offer it through Argos? This does not mean it's at Argos. It probably means the seller has it, and can deliver it to your local Argos later.
