  1. Not so much over, here is a very recent (april '16) article about an article about mac vs windows for Adobe Lightroom. http://graphics-unleashed.com/2016/04/mac-vs-windows-which-is-faster/

I could get 20K with a windows computer, just 10 GPU cards, monitors connected together, and sitting at the right distance with a pair of binoculars on my head to see it. That's nothing. You know, on a serious note, this does bring up the oddities of HUGE wood grain and other oversized texture use. The moire should disapear at a nicer resolution that is more real and allow for really nice texturing. I wonder if it

This was a simple survey with specifically no preference or endorsement one way or the other expressed by the OP, not a troll thread. It was hijacked into a debate on which is better. In reality creators, both SL and RL pros, can now use what ever system they like and do. You are right, but I was joking around and should have put the all important "just joking" after that line. It is a very serious issue, you can lose a lot of time waiting for softwa
  4. Mav vs. PC...this is such a troll thread! These things always end up in arguments. Anyway, since we don't know min. system requirements I bet many people will end up having to spend money on upgrades or new systems. It is a business expense for PC users, but a pain for Mac users as well as an expense! Well, the stratagy works like this: You buy whatever in sansar. Oh, you see your fav creator is now in Sansar, 6 months later. You buy a similar item and replace it! If feeds consumerism, makes another sale and keeps new products steadily coming in rather than a whole glut of reexported old bu
  5. Ah, so many confusing things in this thread. Firstly, they would be taking risk! The risk they don't make back the expenses and compensation for thier time for: 1. Land costs and tier fees. Almost required for events listings in SL search. Don't know if they still do it, so read the rules, but you could run events on Linden owned land that is listed in places search as a Hangout. 2. Time running events OR paying for a host, not sure if a host would bring an entourage or whatever but they may at least have more objects and expereince handling it. If not, then maybe costs for objects to run e
  6. OK, OK. My opinion is, as a whole that most people lean towards regulation to gain and deregulation to gain. This makes them both left and right wing, both liberal and conservative (in US lingo or thinking) and so on. But, my joking around stems from that notion that it isn't easy to define but self preservation leads to technological development after a certain breaking point. The only enemy is to much of anything humans like to do, or too much of what they don't want to do. This is oversimplification though, because balances and timing exist. So, I guess also that many people enjoy idiology
  7. Yes, we need to load out giant Dell servers (or HP if the future preserves some competition) so we can be uploaded to the more memory enabled planets that rise from the smart planets the Singularity will bring about. Of course, SLers are only using the politics of the times to appear normal. They all are into a scret plot to bring about a post-human state. I can say this freely, because look at how good the plan has worked. We even see peopel asking these questions.

SL can get old and handle overflow residents who don't have GPU and CPU power to handle Sansar maybe? You are maybe 100% right about how they feel about the future of thier company, according to what I see from thier actions to make a new virtual world. VR is maybe part of this, it is getting popular. Maybe preffered creators are just what they will use for creating content in Sansar, it reduces AR and other comp

I think the last bits that I put together were that LL had estimated some $75 million (real dollars) worth of annual sales of user goods, modified a bit to reflect a reality that they weren't publishing. I think this article may have the answer: http://www.hypergridbusiness.com/2015/05/ebbe-sl-users-cashed-out-60-mil-last-year/ It was never clear from context what those 60 millions included but it's close enough to your figure we can assume Ebbe was talking about MP sales and only MP
  10. SL is not a game, remember how people say that? So that means it can include things from RL, much like 'preffered partners' programs and so on. I have to admit, Slink items do appeal to creators as well because creators do sell items for users of thier hands and feet. So, they did no focus most likely out of thinking it a waste of time to do so. At the same time, they feel as if they have it all covered maybe? Some are avid sales watchers. If employees do nothing for the marketplace, they lose thier job when someone points out they do nothing. So, start a promotion program or something, ri

Jelousy is an odd word to use here, this is business and basically they didn't need to do this promotion any different than the others they have done in previous years...or did they!? They usually do a hashtag thingy, you make stuff and then hashtag it and then they promote the hastag thingy and have a link you click and it comes up. But
  12. " remove outdated references to Desura and Authorized Resellers; explicitly address our intolerance of harassment of Linden Lab employees; and clarify the arbitration provision in accordance with applicable law. " That part was at the start of the TOS. So, no harrassing LL employee people, Desura isn't owned by them for a long time now and I think they killed Authorized Resellers thingy programs to do with the $L, right? What does it actually s
  13. Hhm, where is that article that people don't do much else in SL but log into the same plot of land and hang out for a short period of time with the same group of people? Sounds cool for peeps with older hardware who just want to get through an event for something other than the avatars there. But avatars are a HUGE part of the experience for some activities and peoples socialization, so I doubt they will use any optimizer much but it is nice to have options and choices.
  14. No mods works because a person can no it was not modified, or at least was more likely not modified. Why? Um, people who sell no copy "art" peices that also have trans. Did starax do this? not sure, but he was a famous SL "sculptor" that predates scultpies. They where prim peices, maybe he was more famous for his wand though! They sold for a bit, not sure about these days. More or lessthat is the strongest case, and while people scoff and claim it is not like Picasso the peices sold for a bit compared to the average price of hair on the marketplace. So, there is a use and a market. The OP

I wouldn't mind painting over much of Picasso's work, and all of Pollack's. ;-). Paint over it? Restoration could be included as "mod" in some ways. Paintings are more like historical musuem peices or wannabe museum peices. This is digital art! The only art i can think of that is digital and also in a publicish medium (the web in this case) is the dudes who make websites and basically sell the code and the web domain. The owners can run it and show it, either on
