Linden Lab Make Second Life Client Open Source

Update – Linden Lab’s dedicated open source ‘busybody’ says hi here

 

In a major move for Linden Lab, they’ve announced that the Second Life client software code is being released as open source under GNU GPL Level 2.

This throws down the gauntlet to any developer who wants to create content – they have access to the source code. This is likely to cut both ways – there’ll be a lot more people doing bug-spotting for free but also others who’ll be looking for ways to exploit what’s there.
