Embracing the Inevitable - Second Life, now Open Source.

Monday, January 8th, 2007 at 4:15 AM PST by phoenixlinden

In 1993, NCSA released their liberally licensed, but proprietary, Mosaic 
2.0 browser with support for inline images arguably heralding the start 
of the web as we know it today. In an act of either acceptance of the 
inevitable or simple desperation, Netscape Communications released the 
bulk of the Netscape Communicator code base to form the foundation of 
projects as Mozilla, Firefox, and Thunderbird.

We are not desperate, and we welcome the inevitable with open arms.

Stepping up the development of the Second Life Grid to everyone 
interested, I am proud to announce the availability of the Second Life 
client source code for you to download, inspect, compile, modify, and 
use within the guidelines of the GNU GPL version 2.
