Is OpenSim usage falling?

Is OpenSim usage falling? | Virtual Worlds and Poetry | Scoop.it

Today, Hamlet Au wrote a column suggesting that the OpenSim user base is shrinking — and used Hypergrid Business numbers to support his position.

The short answer to his question is: No, OpenSim usage is not falling, and the numbers do not support this. In fact, it is growing quite well.

The reason being — the numbers Au is citing aren’t the full numbers, not even for the top 40 largest grids. In particular, InWorldz has only released its active user numbers once, last month, when it was at 4,500 active users. And New World Grid, one of the largest grids, stopped reporting active user numbers this fall.

Assuming that both have been growing steadily, in line with the growth on other grids — and in line with their region growth — that would show a very different picture.
