Lani Global posted a very interesting prediction graph on Twitter on 3rd January for OpenSim vs Second Life for 2014. The graph prediction shows that OpenSim will continue to grow faster than the Second Life grid between now and December 2014. If trends continue as they are then this prediction will be correct for 2014. I hope that there will be a increase of regions/private estates for Second Life during 2014 and for new opensim grids get noticed more.
Latest grid numbers for OpenSim vs Second Life
- 30,214 regions on OpenSim (as of 16th December 2013)
- 26, 227 regions on Second Life (as of 5th January 2014)
Here is a graph published by Hypegrid Business for 2012 and 2013 showing increased growth in OpenSim grids. Again a decline in total Second Life regions.
