Try far as I've seen the maps (resolution and stuff) are the same, the program has more functions, that's it.

Google Maps is nice but Google Earth looks nicer

I'll add that I tried to get it working in wine and cedega with no success. (This was on pretty new hardware and with a recent version of wine.)
