I tried to not be snarky in my title. I hoped I succeeded. Everyone has been great and very patient with my posts. But I have to be honest. I don’t see where the future is leading for HiFi to be adopted by the masses. Until I started experimenting with HiFi, I actually considered myself somewhat computer savvy, at least with Mac OS X. That perception of my abilities changed dramatically the moment I picked up HiFi. So the question I ask, if someone like me, with no coding or networking abilities but otherwise competent on a computer, is seriously and continuously lost with the HiFi experience, then what will be the reaction of the “average” user? And when I say I’m lost with regards to the HiFi experience, I don’t mean putting on my Vive and exploring new worlds. I’m talking about managing a domain.
Perhaps another way of asking about future ease of use is by referencing SecondLife. I have no problems adding content and otherwise managing a sim on SL. Is there any point on the roadmap ahead where the ease of having a domain on HiFi will parallel the ease of having a sim on SL? I just don’t see how HiFi can catch fire with the “masses” unless it is at least as easy to manage a domain here as it is to manage a sim in SL. Otherwise, HiFi will be a really cool place to be in VR, provided that you have some serious “geek-fu” skills.
Again, I hope this post does not come across as adversarial or disparaging. I just wonder where HiFi is at in development of the “average user” experience. If this is as good as it will get, or if one will always need coding and networking skills in order to own a domain, then I will say “Thank You” to everyone for their patient input and interactions with me and hope and pray Sansar is more of what I need.
