The SL Reboot, It's a Brand New Shiny Thing

So the SL reboot "will put focus on content creators as the primary customer". I think I heard that about 8 years ago and invested much money, time and emotion getting to a very happy SL.

Now I feel like a happy Windows XP user who is being told I've to move to Windows Vista (and didn't that work out well!) but all of my pictures, video and music files will be deleted, but that's ok, I can just buy some more. Well, just like I can't recreate a picture of my infant son, I also can't just recreate the one-off build I live in now. Some of the precious music I have is no longer available, and even if it were why should I rebuy it?

Move to the SL Reboot? How many years before the next delete all inventory and start again? Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

With thanks to the Firestorm team for the following links:

  1. I made the same point in the SL forums and was surprised when the CEO, Ebbe Linden, responded:

    "So you think SL can continue forever and still be competitive enought to matter in the future?

    We are going to do our best to make it smooth, but if we have to make a crappy product with crazy complexity and poor user experience to preserve some very specific content compatability we don't want to cause those problems."

    A lot of what you have will be possible to move across and more specifics will come through over time."

    This seems to be some re-assurance that not all inventory will be lost. Ebbe also responded to another question to indicate that the Lab will be working to make indentity transferable.
