If you want to do something other than look at your home from the space, Google Earth is not even free as in beer. Time to download GRASS. Time to download imagery and maps from other sites: e.g http://seamless.usgs.gov/ (well I'm not very sure that imagery is free as in freedom) and others.
However, to manage GRASS is not as easy as Google Earth is, so I hope that Gaia will no vanish.
BTW, here in Europe there is a project directive that would make available free imagery (mostly paid by taxpayers) copyrigthed. See http://okfn.org/geo/ or http://publicgeodata.org/WhatIsInspire
