The New and Improved Newbie
I have not created a new SL Alt in some time, and it is interesting to see how the new out of the box Newbie has been improved. Linden Labs is kind of in a tough spot on this, they want the Out of the Box body to be good enough that people will feel comfortable getting in to the thick of things, but they don't want to take away business from existing vendors with products. If the out of the box body and outfits were too nice you could see the entire buiness of hair and skins drying up over night.
Its a tough ground. In SL you buy a number of things that nature provides in real life. Linden Lab are kind of the creators, they provide the nature. They need to decide how much nature support take and still promotes their idea of supporting an internal market.
