ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY
There is much written about the technology of Opensimulator, that it is outdated, that it looks like a 10-year old version of Second Liffe — and more nonsense. Right now over a hundred universities all over the globe are using Opensimulator. Opensimulator is opensource so yes, there are different versions and not all are fitting for your purpose. You have to take the right one or chose a provider who knows the job. If you like to look behind the technology then watch one of the life streams by Prof. Crista Lopes, aka Diva Canto, UCI University of Califonia, Irvine [recorded in 12/2020]. You find them via the blog of Prof. Austin Tate, aka Austin AI, who provides many entries of historical relevance, reaching back over 15 years.
