There is an Alternative to Second Life

I think Linden Lab has made a huge blunder in the past three days, one that may have been the straw that broke the camels back. I have posted a number of links, comments and encouraged all to make their voices heard regarding Jack Linden's announcement that LL will increase the cost of living and working in Second Life.

My feeling is that for along time the customers/residents/subscribers of Second life, the creators and consumers of it's content, have felt that Linden Lab has totally disrespecting them and the markets that provide the major reason people bother to log into Second Life.

Now consider this:

OpenLife Grid
http://openlifegrid.com

  • It is one of the closest opensim developments to be usable and closer to completion than the others... It will have a working economy in the next couple of weeks.
  • They sell entire mainland regions for $59/mo with marginal setup fee..
  • Each region supports 45,000 prims (yes 45 THOUSAND)
  • Each region supports regular prims to 100m
  • Each region supports regular building up to 4096 meters...
  • There are currently 35,000 registerd users and over 300 active regions.
  • There are brand new personal clusters that have a setup of about $500 and monthly fees of $235 (I think) that are 4 regions controlled together..
  • (180,000 prims at your disposal)
