When news broke that the official Second Life viewer now boasted the new Bento technology for enhanced avatar skeletons, I speculated that SLers would finally show some interest in downloading Linden Lab's viewer. (Instead of Firestorm or another third party viewer, which are much more popular with them, almost all of which still haven't integrated Bento.) In fact, I added a giant link to the official viewer download, because I was curious how many readers would rush to get it.
So far, not so many:
Just over 50 of you clicked. (See above.) In contrast, when I wrote about the new virtual world space, over 500 of you clicked to the official site. The NWN post about Bento itself has easily been read many thousands of times. So if that data point is broadly applicable, SLers are showing lots of interest in Bento the technology... but far as getting the underlying client needed to use and view them, not so much. (At least so far.)
