The Imprudence Viewer "Poised for a Really Strong Comeback"

By Avatar JayR Cela

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I have never really cared to much for the Imprudence viewer. So smack me upside the head. Because I will soon be proven wrong in my dislike for this true labor of love. The team has somehow managed to almost take the Open Sim grid hopping crowd by a resounding storm.

    It's often been said people vote with their feet. While we all wallow around in our Second Live's, the virtual world Linden Lab has allowed us to create for one in other. The folk's at Imprudence have seen the future, and are daring and willing enough to embrace it throughly.

       They understand the importance of Virtual Reality in a modern society. Pushing the Open Source SL V1.x client to the limit's. Many other very dedicated coder's are doing the same. Phoenix, Dolphin, Emergence, Ascent, Singularity, these people absolutely Rock "Big Time"

    But I'm here to tell you right now. Open Sim is not about to go away, neither is the Imprudence Virtual World Client Viewer. Keep you eye's on these folk's, they are about to Kick Some Serious Butt really soon.  If you have not visited the Imprudence web site lately, I highly encourage you to do so.

    They are rapidly working on making the final touch's on the SL 1.x viewer, that will rival Phoenix as the  VW Client Software of choice. And the future plans of the Imprudence Kokua project are about to dust some folk's job into the well deserved dust pan. MacCabe  and Armin the 2 lead developers are relentlessly continuing with many forward thinking plans for a truly Inter-Op  Virtual Universe.

      I guess LL in all their ineptness, will slowly cut off features,availability to any and all 1.x based viewers.  Reluctantly forcing you to use the Disastrous Viewer 2. But that does not mean you can not vote with your feet.

Does anyone out there remember the Mosaic Web Browser ? or Compuserve, how about AOL ?

    Oh my, tsk,tsk tsk.
