Google Earth v4 Released: Linux Support at Last
Straight from Slashdot: "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."
There is also an excellent comment posted on Slashdot regarding this story that details one person's experience using Google Earth to help deal with the aftermath of Katrina in New Orleans. It's definitely worth the read if you have time.
