Linden Lab seems to have completely redone the Linden Home. I'm guessing this is what will be in the new mystery continent to the north.
It's pretty cool actually. Scripted everything and double the number of prims of the old Linden homes. That combined with discounts on premium membership and the Linden Home experience is better than ever.
The problem is, no matter how well done, the Linden home is a new user experience in Secondlife developed at a time when there are fewer new users than ever. If it were me, I'd be more interested in retaining existing users than in trying to bring in new ones.
