    AFAIK Google Earth requires hardware 3D acceleration which wouldn't be available in a TS environment. I think the chances of Google Earth working are pretty slim.

    Anybody want to take a bet that even if it did work, it would crucify the T-servers?

    It does not work (as Norphy points out you need hardware 3D acceleration).

    Use the Microsoft Live Maps service instead Works well on TS too :P
