OpenSim is an appealing open source virtual world platform for hardcore coders and such, but user friendly it is not. Veteran SL/OpenSim developer Fred Beckhusen has a solution for that, and he just made it open source: "It copies the necessary files to disk, sets up Firestorm all ready to log in, and has pre-configured avatars that can log in to a Western town all ready to explore on a horse." Get it here on Github.
"One of these days," adds Fred on FB, "I will find time to set this up for the latest version with Hypergrid and the simplified Onlook viewer. That would make it even simpler for new people to discover our world. If you have the technical knowledge to do so, please consider checking out a copy and consider pushing updates and changes back to the community." Consider this a request for that consideration!
