I don't see what the fuss is all about. Google aquired Picasa(which is pretty impressive software) they didn't write the software. Perhaps they are planning to port the software, or perhaps they are going to use pieces of the software to augment image search algorithms. If I had the chance to acquire a 57 Karmann Ghia convertible with a leaky roof, I'd jump at the opportunity. Would I drive the car before fixing the roof? Yes. Would I plan on fixing the roof? Yes. If 10 percent of my passengers* get wet on the first few rainy days, I'm not going to worry because I'll be fixing the leak soon.
*(unless the passenger was my mom or significant other)
