That all is true of pure OpenSim, but not necessarily true of 
OpenSim-compatible grids. ReactionGrid and InWorldz are 
OpenSim-compatible, meaning they use the same viewers and started with 
OpenSim code, but they've fixed many of the problems and are working to 
fix the others. Personally I favor InWorldz, and am now developing my 
avatars there before SL.
