I was interested in reading the transcript of Cory Linden's technical townhall, yesterday, but didn't want to go/listen at the time due to things like people being annoying every time and repeaters malfunctioning last time. The submitted questions are about 20% on-topic* and useful, and I'm not sure why questions like "When will LL be releasing more first land?" even make it the townhall considering that they are a waste of time. Someone brought up Win98 which made me fall on the floor and froth at the mouth just now. Win98? Holy moley. That wasn't even any good in 1998, let alone in 2007. I gave away a computer with Win98 in 2001. I realise not every one has a new computer** built every three years, like I do, but Win98?
Jeska Linden: Draco Flaman: Does LL plan on releasing a version of SL for other PC types, such as Windows 98? Some of my friends w/ slightly older computers wanted to know this.
Cory Linden: Windows 98? No.
*Of course, anything on-topic is probably beyond my level of knowledge, but I like reading about it anyway. *prods brain with a stick*
**I might wait out another year on this one as it's fairly herky. It's the last gasp of the AGPs but if I added a new card I'd probably be happy for a while. If I want Vista¹ it's a bit early for that anyway. I could opt for Linux and keep both side-by-side...
I have had another gig of ram sitting in a drawer for 7 months now as the person I hired to install it in June flumped out on me. If I think about it too much I'll do it myself, which I really shouldn't do as having one useable hand makes such things difficult and I would be prone to breaking things.
