From the Virtual Earth [maps.live.com] website:

Virtual Earth 3D brings you another step closer to knowing “what it is like out there”. You can search, browse, and organize local information viewed in three dimensions, just the way it exists in the real world. This helps you more effectively find the data that is relevant, making Live Search more useful than ever. Even better—it’s just plain fun!

System requirements:

Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, or the Windows Vista operating system.
Windows Internet Explorer version 6 or 7, with security settings set to enable or prompt Microsoft ActiveX controls.
A video card with 32 MB or greater video memory that is compatible with Microsoft DirectX 9.
Hardware acceleration must be set to Full. For more information, see Help.
