    I’d love a native Linux version. That might not be too far away, considering the recent releases of Picasa and Earth for Linux.

    Note that what this means is that the free Google edition is available for Mac. The SketchUp application itself has been on Mac for a long time. And, incidentally, Linux compatibility could be a long-term strategy for Google very easily. Picasa and Earth are NOT Linux native; they’re wrapped in a virtualizer in order to run on Linux. The fact that we don’t notice, though, is very good news. ;)

    SketchUp is fantastic; can’t wait to get deeper into the thing. It’s worth buying the Pro for movie capabilities and export.
