I downloaded it a few weeks ago. It's pretty cool, but the areas are quite outdated. Microsoft is coming out with MSN Virtual Earth, which is suppose to hit sometime in July. Hopefully the images will be more time appropiate.
Here's a good video showing how much better it will be.
Its really cool but just seems like a bad idea for some reason.
How so? It's using the same satallite images that have been available publically for the last 10-15 years. Some of the more rural areas have images from the early 90's, and the most recent images I've seen are from mid 2004.
They just piece it together and place it on a 3d terrain/globe to allow you to zoom in and out, and fly around different areas.
