VWR 2.8.3, 2.8.2, 2.8.1 and 2.8.0 have recently failed to log in any of my avatars.  I have been able to log in with VWR 1.23, Snowglobe, Kirsten's, Phoenix, firestorm, Rainbow and OnRez.  My BRAND NEW computer will not log in with VWR 2.

 I am fed up.

You will just have to get used to superior viewer inferfaces.:matte-motes-evil-invert:

What do you mean get used to superior interfaces?  I can't get used to something that doesn't work!!

Most viewers have superior user interface as opposed to Viewer 2. It is really a positive problem you have, unless you can't run any viewer at all.

I suspect your problem is with this particular version (or perversion) of Viewer 2.  If you want to use Viewer 2, go back to a slightly earlier version that does work.  Then try Firestorm.  Basically, use what works!

If Linden Labs is smart, they'll keep Viewer 1 going (no updates, but there's Phoenix for that) so those of us who neither want nor need what Viewer 2 has to offer will have a Viewer to use.  Simple fact, Viewer 1 is easier for marginal situations to handle; like less than stellar connections, machines that aren't the newest, cards that aren't top line, people whom Viewer 2 only annoys...  Keeping Viewer 1 and the related products is a way to insure customer loyalty.

Personally, I'm afraid that if / when Linden Labs stops runing Viewer 1 on their servers, they will lose a lot of customers whose above mentioned marginal situations will cause them to lose access to Second Life.  That's like closing the door in the middle of a sale; you lose money, customers, and goodwill.  I think Linden labs can see this.
