If I'm looking at this right there are four different sever, and sims no longer have a class.

 

Second Life Main Channel Regions
Second Life RC LeTigre Regions
Second Life RC BlueSteel Regions
Second Life RC Magnum Regions 

What is the best server to be on?

no one is not better than another...

one is just different than the other.

 

Main channel has the most stable version of sl software

the others, a lot less servers using it, are running the software that is tested to be next most stable version of SL

often with repaired bugs and newer development.

 

in most cases It totally makes no difference where you'r on, average user will not see any difference.

Sometimes a testversion is a bit less stable, has new bugs, but thats happening on the main channel too...

LeTigre has the coolest name. ^_^

Apart from that, the three RC channels get the updates first which can be nice of course but also means they sometimes suffer from bugs that are sorted out before the main channel sims get the update. It's extremely rare you notice any difference at all though. It won't happen every year and when it does, it only lasts for a few days - a week at most.

One factor that may be significant to some users, is that main channel sims are restarted on Tuesdays, RC channel sims on Wednesdays.

My main hangout is a Le'tigre sim...

 

Apart from the later rolling restarts, it tends to be the first of the RC channels to  get new test server builds, and if there's a problem  with said build, often we'll have to wait till the builds been rolled out and caused problems on Bluesteel and Magnum before it gets fixed, sometimes they roll out on the 3 Rc channels at 2 week intervals, so it can be 8 weeks before they fix something...

 

Sometimes you can get either worrying messages or even problems moving from an RC channel sim to a sim on a different RC or on Main, due to different versions of the server code, that can make life... Unpredictable.

 

Cool names come at a price... ;)
