Google Earth Being Made For Linux

When Google released Picasa for Linux there was a big stir all over the web about it. People were amazed at Google’s dedication to bring their Windows applications to Linux. Then we all started to wonder if Google was going to stop there or continue to transform their popular applications over to the Linux platform. Well, it looks like Google Earth may be the next converted Google application that we see.

This isn’t a rumor or anything, and surprisingly WineHQ actually announced that they were working on Google Earth when they made the Picasa announcement. They also had this to say:

You might be able to get a sneak preview of Google Earth on Linux if you start tracking CVS.

So if there are any hardcore Linux users you might be able to start using Google Earth soon if you are into testing software.
