SecondLife "Oz Linden & The SecondLife Technologist have an Informal Chat"

By Avatar JayR Cela

    I first met Oz last year when Phillip had returned to the CEO post at LL, at that time Oz was pretty much put in charge of the SnowStorm Project. He and I have butted head's on a few occasion's. Mostly difference of opinion's. Yesterday he dropped by for a visit, very informal, but quite enlightening to say the least.

This guy is really deep, absolutely loves his job and is incredibly devoted to ensuring that Viewer2 is a success.        

And despite all the V2 bashing I regularly spew forth here, he still talks with me. You ain't gonna meet many people like this very often.

   So what's the game plan ?
Well there is a ton of power under the hood for V2, and the fact that Cory Linden ( no longer with LL ) and Phillip decided to Open Source the Viewer, was in itself a stroke of genius.

   We have Dolphin, Imprudence, Kirsten's, Hitomi's Starlight mod, Phoenix, FireStorm Preview,The Official Viewer2, SnowStorm, and a handful of others to use as we prefer. And here is the point that is so important. There is NO ! Correct or all in one SL client that will ever suit everyone's need's.

    Find the one you like best, and hang onto your hat's. This Party is Just Getting Started !
