I can't agree with the use of tablets as being the future, at least not a desirable one!
It seemed to me that Lani had some great points on that matter. Keep in mind that my first PC had 64k of ram. That is not an M or a G but a k! Imagine where mobile devices will go in the next 5 years.
It appeared to me that Lani's point was that there should be some gateway software to allow the casual user to experience opensim to some degree so as to perk their interest to consider getting better hardware/software to enhance their experience and thus keep the user base growing. Although realxtend is no longer opensim compatable; it is worth a look at http://realxtend.org/
to see what is possible even in these early days of mobile.
I can't agree that OSGrid needs to be Mass market to exist, nor that desktop users are old dead ones!
Mass market does not mean a continual growth or at least a stabalized user base. The old MUD that was my cyber home in the 90's is still up; yet you would be lucky to find more than 5 players online compared to the hundreds back then. The same is inevitable here if new technology is not embraced.
And for sure i will never agree that being known or being the most used thing in the World means anything!
Again, it is my feeling that the suggestion was not mean to be the most
used; but used at all in the future.
