I’ve seen this viewer appearing in Inara Pey’s Viewer Round Up’s. She also did a good review of Radegast 2.2 in early August. I saw some information on the OSGrid forum that interested me so I did some checking.
Between Inara’s review and the Radegast Wiki one can get a good impression of how the viewer works.
The Wiki describes the viewer as:
Radegast is feature rich GUI client. With its full support for all communication within a virtual world (chat, IM, group IM, friends conference) it’s ideal for situations where full 3D client is less than ideal solution, for example, an office environment, too slow a machine and similar.
It’s written using libopenmetaverse, and it runs on any platform that supports .NET/mono. It’s being actively tested on Windows and Linux.
There is a good collection of screen shots on the wiki. See: Radegast Screenshots.
I’m not going to install the viewer and review it. It just doesn’t look like fun. I mean that it won’t be ‘fun’ for me. It just isn’t something I want to play with. I will be keeping it in mind for when I am away from home and must use a light weight computer.
