Here's the results of last week's survey, asking whether Linden Lab's new island set-up discounts have inspired SLers to want to buy a new island:
Of the 140 who took the survey, only 11% said they were "Much more" or "somewhat more" likely to buy an island under the new pricing structure. This 11% might not seem like a lot, but that's roughly the percentage by which Second Life's landmass is going away every year. So if that sliver of potential customers does indeed pony up for a sim, and are willing to pay the monthly tier year after year, this setup discount will have been worth it.
That said, we should look to Grid Survey to see if this expression of interest actually leads to actual virtual island purchases.
