OpenSim is a project I have followed for a few years now. Like many others, I have set up private sims at home. But progress has been slow to stagnant. From my point-of-view, it seems that OpenSim core developers don’t wish to build a great project, they just want to build a generic one that can be changed or adapted to many different needs. This is a great idea, but most of us really just want one thing from OpenSim: a Second Life-like grid or sim. Some OpenSim core developers run grids themselves and don’t even use Opensim. They even use that as part of the pitch for their grid saying, “This is not OpenSim.” Think about that for a minute and what that means.
For these reasons, I believe OpenSim will soon fall aside, and Aurora will take its place.
Today I learned of something very exciting, something that makes me even more excited about OpenSim.
If you're like me, you tolerate LSL because, there is no other choice. For years, I have wished for a real programming language like C#, with full access to the core sim components. Well, turns out I am not the only one that has this dream, and guess what... The dream is coming true! *wipes the tears from his eyes*
