Good move. Though I still say an entire GUI redo with tablets in mind is very due. But this will make SLGo much more comfortable on a PC, giving people a more familiar GUI.

(By the way, the iPad is 4:3 ratio. It would be really nice to be able to play with the full screenspace without zooming in.)

I like the Firestorm version of SLGo much better. The sizes of the chat, inventory & other windows is a lot more reasonable. You cannot upload wind lights, but the Firestorm version comes with a very generous selection of wind lights.
I can't email the pics to myself for some reason (they never get sent, but sending them to flickr works great. I took a couple of 5000x2813 images and sent them to directly to flickr. They look great!
The only thing I hope I can do is change my flickr, because I want to upload them to my husband's flickr (he doesn't use it) so I don't clog up my main flickr feed with photos I'm just going to download, crop, and use half. Does anyone know if it's possible to change the flickr preference?

I've been using SLGO on both desktop and tablet since it became available. I have noticed since the announcement of FS being an option that it's far harder to log in, especially at peak times if I choose the Firestorm viewer option. Oddly,if I choose LL viewer as the client I get in far quicker. Is this because the clients are hosted on different servers ? It just seems strange that suddenly I get far more "unable to launch game" errors since FS became available.

Hamlet, with the addition of Firestorm, now you can SLGo to OpenSimulator grids even with your older computer. There are a lot of interesting stories for you there. Some of the places you can visit are listed at http://www.hypergridbusiness.com/statistics/active-grids/
