Second Life restart with cloud and oculus rift | Mondi Virtuali

Second Life restart with cloud and oculus rift | Mondi Virtuali | Immersive World Technology | Scoop.it

The decision to outsource the development of new products and services seems likely to be the hallmark of the strategy with which Linden Lab tries to turn the page: a few days ago it was announced the launch of SL Go OnLive, an announcement that seems to confirm, after the decision to discontinue the development of some products such as dio, Versu and Creatorverse, the decision to focus more on outsourcing and the development of new industrial and commercial partnerships, rather than the internal development of new products by the Californian company or to acquire them as happened with Blocksworld.

OpenSim regions drop on OSgrid’s spring cleanup, other indicators continue to improve

OpenSim regions drop on OSgrid’s spring cleanup, other indicators continue to improve | Immersive World Technology | Scoop.it

The top 40 OpenSim grid lost nearly 5,000 regions this month, as a result of a long-overdue spring clearing on OSgrid. The last time there was a net drop in regions in OpenSim was last April, when ScienceSim cut around 2,000 regions from its grid, an Intel-backed OpenSim testing platform. The last OSgrid-related drop was back in late 2012. 

Other indicators continued to improve, however. The total number of registered users rose by 1,367, to 338,945, and the total number of active users rose slightly as well, to 18,957.

Without OSgrid’s cut of 5,127 regions, the rest of the top 40 grids gained 265 regions.
