OpenSim’s birthday is january 29th, 2007 but its outward manifestation is the OSGrid
the OSGrid is the official testing grid for OpenSim development and has grown into the community OpenSim experience. anyone can connect their home grid, server, or whatever to OSGrid
there is a relatively easy way to set up OpenSim on your machine with a customised OSGrid version of it
OSGrid currently has a over 9000 regions but can feel unpopulated if you are used to Second Life numbers
if you have been holding off on checking out OSGrid, or OpenSim, this weekend might be a good chance to see what it’s all about!
OSGrid celebrates its 5th anniversary with events starting today and going on through tuesday
for a look at the schedule, head over to Daniel Voyager’s listing of events
have fun and happy birthday OSGrid! (they grow up so quickly) =)
