Microsoft Virtual Earth 3D vs Google Earth

Playfuls compared Microsoft's new Virtual Earth 3D with Google Earth.
The first annoying thing that all users outside the US or England will probably encounter is that you are not allowed to install Virtual Earth 3D yet in your native language. In order to be able to install Microsoft’s VE3D you’ll have to change your settings (if you are in Windows XP) from Control Panel-Regional Settings and make your computer have a default English language. I haven’t yet had the opportunity to test the program on Linux, Solaris or Mac, but I am not that naïve to think it will work on those operating systems…My apologies to Microsoft if that is not the case…
