A concerned user

Steam users rightfully hate linden labs and this will not take off

Chic Aeon

The concurrency is obviously up with lots of new folks running around (and they almost always run it seems :D) so the point of the exercise appears to have worked.

The Lab was never expecting thousands of folks to come in all at once in the "if you build it they will come" model. At a product meeting last month (the STEAM one) it was mentioned that they wanted more folks on the platform for testing. And there is that with some experiences needing to spawn second and third instances -- at least that is what the numbers suggested - I didn't go look. I was in a copy of an experience yesterday but not sure if that was a 2 or a 3.

So apparently the launch went as planned.

Also interesting is that most everyone "chose" an avatar, so very few gray doughboys around. Moonwalk guys seemed to be popular. I didn't really see all that many gals but assume there are a few in the mix.

Always tricky ass-u-ming things :D.
