Marble provides basic engine for free Google Earth replacement

How about the fact that in many cases the Linux versions of those proprietary but free applications are inferior to their Windows counterparts? I know that the Linux version of Skype, for example, is a couple of releases behind the Windows version and as such doesn't have the same features. Last time I looked at it Google Earth for Linux was still using WINE (admittedly this was a while ago and things may have changed) and didn't have GPS support.
