I do not want my previous post to be interpreted as me disparaging Linden as a whole. I am not happy with what I see written in the termination agreement right now, but perhaps my unhappiness comes from the fact that I don't speak Lawyer. Hopefully I'll find out.
To be clear, though, Linden has a collection of really strong people. I think that people in support and engineering alike get a really bad rap from a lot of residents, blog posts and comments, and sometimes in the media. Things like this 1000-prim limit on coalesced objects in server 1.26 (that may or may not change in the near future); that's not the Lindens being capricious and uncaring about residents, it's them trying to deal with real and thorny problems in the second life server. There are really good, really smart people at Linden trying to make Second Life the best it can be. It's a hard problem. I don't agree with everything Linden does or is doing (obviously, because I was fired), but there are great people there. I had a great working relationship with the vast majority of the people I worked with, and have nothing but great respsect for them.
