Google Earth Browser Pane?

So, this weekend I was showed Google Earth-on-Windows has a “Browser Pane”, where you can do searches and so on from within Google Earth, and the application will send back extra requests when the Google Earth client moves and so on.

I’m looking into doing some stuff with this, but when I looked, the mac client has no such browser pane. I then looked up WINE’s records for Google Earth and found it doesn’t run under Ubuntu Breezy, which is what I’m running.

So, does anyone have any suggestions as to how I could either 1. Get a copy of Windows Google Earth running on OS X or Ubuntu 5.10, for the Browser Pane feature, or 2. Get an account on a windows box I can RDC to? 🙂

    VMWare Server, which is free as in beer, is the obvious tactic. Grab a copy, find Windows from somewhere, install it, keep it around for those pesky Windows programs that won’t run on anything else.

    “Find Windows from somewhere” is the problem there 😉 But I didn’t realize that VMWare Server was free-as-in-beer, that’s a good find.
