I thought that died and was buried.  It was an experiment that didn't pan out.  All it did was put a bank of computers that had direct connection to LL's servers and streamed the video/mouse/keyboard data.  All the graphics would be generated on site and streamed to your computer, making your machine nothing but a graphic terminal. 

While this is wonderful in theory, in reality, everybody has bandwidth caps nowdays.  And it would be easy to bust that cap only playing on SL for a single day on some ISPs.  Plus the lab has to buy and maintain a dedicated computer for every person logged into SL -- so if concurrency is 50,000 people, that's 50,000 PCs LL has to buy to do the rendering and streaming.  A very expensive proposition, that was.  So the idea was shelved.  I've heard no hints that their are plans to try it again.
