Submission + - Second Life's Open Source Fairy Tale

darthcamaro writes: Apparently things are going really well for the open source version of the Second Life viewer. So well that there are not multiple builds for different Linux distros and a new open source plug-in architecture is being developed. From the article:
"What has happened is the fairy tale version of what people hope to have happen when they make proprietary code open source," Rob Lanphier, Linden Lab's director of open source development said. "Which is people download; start adding features. It's crazy cool all the things that are happening right now."

In a five year period we can get one superb programming language. Only we can't control when the five year period will begin.

Working...
