On 22nd January Maria Korolov who is the editor and publisher of Hypergrid Business posted up a new OpenSim Viewer Survey. The aim of the survey is to find out what OpenSim viewers the OpenSim community use the most, what favourite features they like and what they’d want to see fixed in the future.
Apparently one random respondent who completes the survey will get a free virtual reality headset for their mobile phone which sounds awesome. Woooot! 🙂
