Google Earth v.4 comes to Linux
Higher-res images, too
Some excellent news this morning for all you Linux jockeys - you can now join the rest of the planet in enjoying Google Earth, as the search monolith has just released  Version 4 beta of the programme in PC, Mac and Linux flavours.
Version 4 reportedly offers "greater coverage and higher resolution" and comes in French, German, Italian and Spanish variants. We haven't had a chance to give it a run yet, but this early report  reckons "the application works relatively well on the Linux platform". ®
