    Default Second Life Client Goes GPL

    The company will immediately release open source versions of its client software for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. In order to enter and move around the Second Life service, users must download and run this software on their computer desktop. But now, says Linden CEO Philip Rosedale, independent programmers will be able to "modify it, fire it up and sign on with it." The company gave Fortune exclusive access to executives in advance of the change.

    Michael, that's a little inaccurate. It should read: "Second Life Client Goes Open Source". The whole system's not open source yet.
