SecondLife "Oz Linden Announces Collaboration with Phoenix FireStorm's Jessica Lyon and Team"

By Avatar JayR Cela

     This one came as a real shock to me. Three times last week, once during the the Wednesday SnowStorm daily Scrum meeting, again at the former Esbee Lindens's office hour, and then again at Oz Linden's office hour. (As a matter of fact Jessica was in attendance for the later and confirmed, Oz's statements) SnowStorm will soon be integrating some of FireStorms code base, beginning soon after FireStorm2
( Storm2 ) moves into the Beta channel.

    What does this mean for users? Well my guess is pretty close to what Phillip Rosedale predicted last year. That Viewer2 would eventually lead to, a basic easy to use, fast and fun SL client geared towards casual and new users. And a more sophisticated version designed for more complex needs. ( Content Creators ) And this still leaves a good bit of leeway for other variations of V2 by various TPV's.

    All in all, only time will tell.
