The Even-More-Basic Viewer

Have you read about the new beta Basic Viewer? You can read about it here (Raul Crimson's blog) and here (Alicia Chenaux's blog). It's a stripped down version of the viewer intended for new users. It lacks such "confusing" items as inventory, landmarks, voice, avatar customization and movement controls.

Well, I have created what I call the The-Even-More-Basic-Viewer. It's by far the easiest viewer to use EVER, in my humble opinion. Here's how you can try it out:

Step 1: Find a Second Life user in your geographic area. 

Step 2: Ask their permission to come to their house and watch over their shoulder while they do stuff in world and explain what they are doing.
Step 3: Profit!

I feel that The-Even-More-Basic-Viewer is better because the new SLer has the opportunity to learn about things like inventory, building, commerce, griefers and Windlight settings with a set of  training wheels of sorts.

The only downside of The-
Even-More-Basic-Viewer? Finding someone who is willing to admit in RL that they use SL.  Enjoy.
