What’s wrong with both? When there’s a functional, Free GNU/Linux port a MacOS port from that codebase will be trivial. Or do you really want a Mac version created to the exclusion of GNU/Linux users?

As a Linux user I’m obviously biased, but I am disappointed that there is no Google Earth for Linux at the moment… It may or may not be fair but whatever happened to “Don’t be evil” ? And but doesn’t Google use Linux itself on a fairly large scale ? Why not support the operating system that supports you ? Hmm ?
