They are doing this port through WinE if I understood this correctly.
Nonetheless, this seems to be the first application among a series, which
should work rather fast (despite the 'WinE-layer' penalty) and be
cross-distribution (probably self-contained, no 'dependency hell').
The Windows Pack (distribution) is probably the sum of all applications that
are due to become available to a more saturated range of platforms. Mind
you, Google use Ubuntu on their desktops, so they need access to their own
toys (apps) *smile*.
