I love trying to figure out where ridiculous rumors come from.  All I can guess is that some newbie heard about the old Emerald viewer that LL shut down about a year and a half ago and then morphed the story into a present day intrigue.  NO, it's not true. 

At this point, there are more people using Phoenix and Firestorm than using LL's V2 and 1.23 viewers.  Add in the people using Imprudence, Kirstens, Singularity, and the other TPVs, and that's a lot of people.  LL developers keep the TPV developers informed about changes in the V2 codebase and the server software that all of the viewers have to deal with. Having multiple viewers not only gives SL residents choices, but it means that we have the advantage of competing experimental models.  Features that become popular in one viewer can show up in other viewers faster than if LL had the only shop in town.  This is a good, productive product environment.

LL have a good working relationship with the 3rd party viewers and meet with them regularly, as well as listing a directory of the approved ones on their wiki http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Third_Party_Viewer_Directoryso no, that is absolutely NOT true.

Well done for having the sense to ask rather than just believe stupid rumors :)
