    Google is hard at work making google earth working on linux. I can't wait for it to come out.

    It's the only app that I still use windows for (I almost never play games anymore, except for a couple on linux). I've found a ton of interesting stuff in google earth (SR-71's, a Concorde, B1-B's, F-14's, tons of warships, ...) and it's really cool to 'visit' some of the places I've been to (Madrid, Paris, Amsterdam, Yellowstone...).

    Yup, been there, done that

    My favourite is Edwards airforce base, north of Los Angeles, you've got a couple of SR-71's, a F-22 (I think), and tons of other cool planes. Pearl Harbor is also neat, there's a memorial of a sunken ship, a small part of it is sticking out of the water. Also at Pearl Harbor, there's an passanger airplane in flight, flying across the runway.

    Another cool thing to check out is the airport in Kandahar, where there are a ton of wreacked planes all around. Also, there's someplace in the south US where old planes are stored, can't remember the location right now, but there's a ton of everything, from old bombers to A-10 Warthogs.

    Google Earth for Linux

    It's there now : Google Earth

    I ran the installer, but when I launch it, it seems to stall after the splash screen

    I have an ATI Mobility X1600, running under Fedora Core 6 (kernel 2.6.21 + 2.6.22rc3 prepatch). glxgears runs great, so opengl is working.

    Will work on getting it functional after work.
