Gartner is pretty much just a marketing arm now.

They will pretty much tell you whatever the high paying client wants them to say. Right FB?

If you count Facebook as a form of "second life", their prediction was on point.

if by mainstream they mean 3D gaming, and/or sit on the sofa at home and watch/interact with 3D movies then yes 5 years is pretty doable

This does seem more about Gartner being in the news than anything else.
