I've been beating on Croquet like forever. It has all the potentials to
be the best VR environment ever, sorta like a free SecondLife. The linux
end of this open-source project leaves something to be desired, as most
of the Devel is under Windows. Of course with shit all over the place,
code-wise, hardware drivers wise, etc. I gotta admit that is it a tough
moving target for any project, I just wish we could get more linux
people involved with this. Anyone interested just email me off-list and
I'll tell you just how to get it to work at all. Ric
