Ah, the world in the palm of your...desktop. A great trivia tool and a boon for geography students, WinGlobe places an interactive digital replica of the Earth, which can be sized and rotated, on your desktop. Moving the cursor over the globe reveals cities and respective latitudes and longitudes. We had some trouble getting population data, however, a feature that's supposed to be included. Another feature gives information about the world's weather, but must be started manually. If you're online, you can jump from a city to a Web site for more fun facts about the specified region. As one would expect, the world is heavy. We had trouble rotating and dragging the globe despite running the program on a 2GHz CPU. Overall, a neat download and fun for those who spend loads of time pouring over maps.
