Further Reflection on Second Life 2.0

The developments of Second Life have followed a progression of thought, making the User Interface (UI) easier and easier to use. This current version makes it possible for anyone who uses the internet to enter Second Life and grasp the principles of using the virtual world.

For major builders, this could be a positive development. Many have put a lot of time, effort, skill and money into making places that are beautiful and livable. For those residents, having more people come into Second Life could mean having more tenants for their spaces, and I do not wish to disparage mass immigration, I just wish we could also have ways to:
1. do machinima without contortions in our video editors
2. do multiple creative tasks such as scripting and building without obscuring the screen
Is that too much to ask?
