Inspired by some stuff I just read over in the forums…
If you come into SL expecting to find a “game”…you’re likely to be disappointed. As a “game,” SL is relatively poor-performing; it can’t be as speedy as a typical MMORPG, the system architecture forbids it. Yet that’s also what makes it so flexible.
If you come into SL expecting to find a new chat system, or a 3-D modeler…you’ll probably find what you’re looking for, but you may not fully grasp the possibilities of the system.
But if you come into SL with an open mind, not really sure what you’ll find but willing to seek out new things and learn as you go…you’ll probably find everything you ever imagined, and a great deal more besides.
