Anything Google can do, Microsoft can (try) and do better

I've just been having a play about with Windows live Maps (http://maps.live.com). At first look it does seem to have some pretty cool functions, such as the ability to install an activeX that gives you a 3D view, and you can rotate round it. This looks very good when viewing hills and large buildings

A lot of the images also seem to be of better quality than Google maps.

Problems do seem to happen when you start looking at different countries other than the US and the UK. I looked a the south of France and there wasn't even any house's being shown. So good features, but a long way to go yet if they want to challenge Google
