From Google Earth:
"We're very happy to announce that the a new version of Google Earth has been released. It features 3D textured buildings, some neat UI updates, better internationalization and, with this release, a native Linux version is available for download as well. The Google Earth team (with the help of Ryan Gordon) worked very hard to make this possible. Please see the Earth support site and check out the BBS for more information."
Has anyone here using or tried Google Earth?

If you haven't tried it (the 'basic' version is FREE), you really ought to. I'm REALLY impressed!

Yeah, I have tested it and I liked it alot, although my daughter was most impressed with it.

I will d/l it to the Linux machine and try it out asap.

I've tried it on both my work ThinkPad and my home's Mac mini. I like it. It is useful for identifying landmarks when planning out of town trips.

I can spend hours on Google Earth - it's absolutely amazing. :mg:

It only gets annoying when you want to zoom in on a town or area and it turns out that they haven't mapped that area in any detail (I think this happens more often outside the US).

They seem to have focused on high-density population areas, which is understandable while it's in its early versions. But I'd like to think they were planning on expanding the scope of the coverage and not just adding more whistles and bells. :)
