  1. Yes, GoogleEarth has the same thing under a little button, but they don't tell like "oh my god, we are such genious bringing that holy thing to the world" like microsoft here in the video. *shuggle*

  2. I prefer Celestia. Then slap on some galaxy / nebula addons from Celestia Motherlode for the extra bling bling, and you have a free / open-source multiplatform application for universe exploration.

    MS is being pathetic as usual when it comes to targetting various platforms.
