“….This is exactly what Marketplace was built and designed for. To parse millions of things and allow people to sell one item of interest. The most important content deemed “worth” selling is already parsed and categorized thanks to you, the community. Making a copy of Marketplace as a system and repurposing it as an Indie Developer content service for Desura would entail flipping a couple of content permission switches and readjusting the percentages in favor of Linden Lab.
As seen with recent viewers, it’s perfectly feasible to export content as a Collada model and even with the textures – so long as you have full permissions on the item. But then, who controls the master switch for content permissions, eh?
This puts Linden Lab squarely in the realm of the biggest Copy-Botter outfit in Second Life.” ~ Will Burns – Andromeda Media Group
He just might be on to something big here…. Read on:

I got a gift from the boys again (Linden Labs premium gift) and tried it out at the premium race course. It was totally cool to run the vehicle up and down the sand dunes but it was extremely difficult to stear! Or will they deliver the drivers licence in the next gift box? Anyone tried this? What did u think? Was it me, lag or is it something weird about the stearing?*
Anyhoo the sims are cool and u can use other vehicles of coures. The buggy is customize too so u dont have to have it in pink ;)
*UPDATE: A friend tried it and had no problem with stearing…. cough…

Why is that? Because your membership is almost for free if you look closely at it. You get a free Linden Home or a 512 sqm for free as a member. The land above is 512 sqm. Ok not many prims but there is a lot of low prim stuff in SL so you can fill your parcle anyhoo =)
If you dont want your plot you can donate it. Some landlords give you a free rental if you donate land. Ravenglass rentals for exampel.
As a Premium you also get 300 L$ every week. 260 L$ is 1 US $ so its good money back! You only pay a few dollars a month (depending on VAT) and you get almost all back this way. Good deal!
I myself has had a lot of awesome help from the Live Chat you can access as a Premium member. When i screw up I log in and get help instantly! If you are griefed you get help faster too.
The Premium sandboxes are wonderful to build in. No one disturbs you. You can build for hours in peace.
You also get some Premium destinations and gifts. Ok some ppl complains about the gifts but then some ppl have a need to complain about everything im afraid :O)
So my advice is, sign up as a premium member, its well worth the money. LINK: Premium membership.
