A review of google earth

Google is touting google earth on its birthday. I continue to find that it has much less detail of my neighborhood than does NASA World Wind. Attached is the view of my neighborhood at the default mag it gave when I typed in my hometown.

I was however able to get it to load the first time without too much anguish using linux, Knoppix 5.01, and its built-in WINE, although not all the controls were visible all the time. It is also not clear to me whether this WINE process will mean a fresh "install" each time or not.
