My question is why does SL remain one of the buggiest pieces of software I've ever run on any computer I've ever used? Why does it consistently crash my gaming laptop? etc. I could go on and on.

But that quote doesn't refer to SL. What they're talking about is how they like to look at quotes _about the web_ from the early 90s, people complaining about its faults and deficiencies, and map them to current quotes and complaints about SL. I don't think anyone at Linden thinks SL is perfect, they've clearly got a long, long way to go and they're going about it in some...interesting ways, at least from an outside perspective.

The reason it's still that way is, frankly, they're trying to solve really hard problems. Props to them, I think it's great they're tackling big challenges, and I don't think any of the problems they have to address are trivial. Doesn't make me want to use SL until some of them get sorted though.

> But why have things not changed since the early 90s, if these faults have been known for so long?

i think that you asked a good question, actually. it's different technology, but still - they should learn on others' mistakes. and there is no good excuse for not doing this.
