I'm no scientist, but steady, slow growth of High Fidelity seems to make it the most steadfast. That's what happens when leadership is visionary, and not just about making money, or jumping on the VR hype wagon.

Fantasy and business are the killer app for VR. Do you live in a repressive country like the US? Have fun in VR and you dont have to worry about the law. Want to have a business? Do it. Want to be a fairie in a fairy forest? Do it. Want to have an orgy youd never dream of in real life? Do it. Want to build and code and create games for playing but you arent experienced in making pc games? Just do it.

The vr killer app is that it allows anyone anywhere to be utterly free, with only the rules of SL to worry about. What LL needs to realize is that the more restrictive they make vr, the less reason it has to exist in the first place.
