Linden Lab Acquires XStreet SL and OnRez — Is This Good?

Linden Lab has decided to get into the actual merchandising end of the grid, instead of being just the invisible overlord.  The Big Blog (which links to their press release) informs us that the Lab is purchasing XStreet SL and OnRez, the off-Grid catalogues of virtual goods that are delivered to you in world.  Not surprisingly, they plan to consolidate the two services into one, doing all their selling under the XStreet banner and dropping OnRez.

What do you feel about this?  I’m not sure I’m thrilled with this, but it may be mostly because I’m a storekeeper on OnRez, and I’d have to move everything over to XStreet.  Something about loss of competition also whispers to me, though.  I’d like your opinions to help me get my own together.  So what are your thoughts?

A Shamelessly Commercial Notice

Announcing, with a tasteful fanfare of trumpets, the opening of:

Harper\'s Fine Art and Photographs

my new store in OnRez.  My collection of quality RL works for your purchase (at prices below £250) is small at this time — only 11 items — but I find more work to frame and offer for sale almost every day.  I’m currently working on a collection of portraits and scenes by John Singer Sargent, and I already have several items related to the 1920s for your examination.  As the collection grows, I plan to offer fatpacks of multiple items at discount for mass purchase.  (If my own photography in SL improves, I may start offering my own work as well — and I could consider acting as agent for others, on a commission basis.)

Have bare walls?  Looking for gifts?  Come to Harper’s Fine Art and Photographs! I’ll be glad to work with you.  Commissions accepted, beginning at £350.  (No pornography, please).
