While originally based on OpenSim technology for virtual worlds, Kitely has added their own optimizations which makes their user experience low lag. (Something that is the bane of every avatar in Second Life’s existence)
Kitely also takes a unique approach to pricing. Recognizing that while Second Life might be free to play – that’s only because the content creators and landowners are footing that bill for everyone with the large fees they pay monthly for basically, the privilege of entertaining and providing content for everyone with free accounts.
Kitely’s basic account includes a free island, that’s right a free virtual world of your own. This is a feature that is unbelievable to me when compared to Second Life’s $300.00 a month fee for owning the same amount of pixel property on their servers.
