Some OpenSim users have complained that closed grids — especially InWorlds, the largest closed grid of them all — do not contribute enough back to the community.
(Though that, in and of itself, is a valuable service.)
In particular, over the past 12 months alone the grid has:
- reported bugs and donated bug fixes
- donated code that allows OpenSim to manage extremely large inventories by using the Cassandra “big data” platform
- made a $500 donation to help OSgrid recover and offered them a free and reliable asset database solution
- helped the military’s MOSES grid bring the PhysX physics engine to OpenSim
