On a Mac

If you have money to get a better machine say a Mac or Windows high end machine SL is a magic experience. But the problem is that you need to have propitiatory software and a dual core processor with good graphics card to join the SL community. Therefore it is a community not open to a vast part of humanity. Certainly you can't expect people without computers to be able to join, but it could be more inclusive.












I did meet one of the builders and had this conversation:
