Openlife dumps Second Life viewer support

I haven’t logged into Openlife for a few weeks, so I was unaware that support for the standard Second Life viewer has ceased. The proprietary viewer is now standard fare.

Release 1.6.2 is the current build, and the Mac version runs like a dream for me. I’d argue its performance is zippier than the Second Life browser though it’s not without its own ability to crash. The Openlife web portal has also had some welcome further improvements.

As stated previously, this is a grid with momentum.

  1. The grid may have momentum, but there are serious problems with copyright violations. Until content creators have security, they will not come and build. When they see their own creations offered for sale, or stripped of the true creator's name, they will lose confidence in the grid at best and at worst, OpenLife could find itself being bogged down by having to deal with a flurry of DMCAs.

    Hi Saffia,

    Certainly, any of the alternate grids have some significant work still to do to match the intellectual property underpinnings of Second Life. It's a key differentiator at this stage.

  3. The only problem is the viewer is based on GPL code that is not being made available. Stay way from OpenLife, imho, here's why http://imohax.com/2009/01/30/stay-away-from-openlife-grid/

  4. Theyve “reinvented” the blaxxun server and “cybertowns” all open with no ip protection for content built. See Exitreality.com fof the latest fail using the same failed techy meme.

    NO CONTENT creators worth anything will show up. Why if all they have to look forward too is copied and resold examples of their hard work.?

    Frisbee will be a Linden and salaried and stock optioned. The rest of you are dolts for spending anytime or money on this scam.
