Microsoft’s WorldWide Telescope

Microsoft will be launching a competitor to Google Earth’s Sky feature, called “WorldWide Telescope,” on February 27, TechCrunch reports. The downloadable desktop software is claimed to be “significantly better” than either Google Earth or Stellarium in terms of data and interface, but it will be (sigh) Windows-only at least at the outset, so I won’t get to play with it.
