Chennai in google earth

Google has released a new version (release 4 beta) of their google earth yesterday. Details of this release is here: http://earth.google.com/earth4.html

I am happy about this release for two reasons:
1. Google earth is available for Linux machines. So now I am able to install google earth in my linux laptop.
2. Google earth features my favorite place chennai (its also my home state capital). Its now possible to see more details(street level details) of chennai. Previously google earth used to show in detail only Bangalore, New Delhi, Bombay & Hydrabad cities in India. For some unknown reason chennai was left out by google. I am happy that atleast now google earth shows chennai in detail.

Following screen shot shows chennai's famous Anna Flyover in google earth.
