The developers have had a registry entry for a few months now, but now it's official:

As some sharp-eyed developers have speculated, we’re going to make Second Life available on Steam in the next month or so.

Many of us have friends who are avid Steam gamers, but if you’re not familiar, Steam is a very popular online game platform that offers a wide range of titles (and will soon also offer other software as well).

What does this news mean for Second Life? You’ll still be able to access Second Life just as you can today; there won’t be any change to that. But, the more than 40 million people who use Steam will also be able to get Second Life as easily as they can get games like Portal.

We’ll make an announcement on the blog when Second Life is actually available on Steam, but in the meantime, if you have friends who are Steam gamers, let ‘em know it’s coming!

It looks like the number of active accounts for Second Life stayed steady after he took over:

Gaben has finally betrayed us. First MapleStory, now Second Life. Whats next, World of Warcraft? League of Legends? Then more pointless MMO games that ruin people's lives so their virtual character can look pretty. When does the suffering end?

Second Life is living proof that if you give people the power of the gods they will use it to make grotesque imitations of cartoon characters with giant dicks and walpaper their houses with grainy jpgs from the 90s.

Imagine an MMO where anyone can make anything. Now imagine the darkest depths of the furry fandom finding it. That's Second Life.

My only exposure to Second Life was this one documentary about an obsessed player, and what kind of effect it had on his personal life. It's a pretty good documentary, I'll look for it in the meantime and edit it in this post.

EDIT: Found the documentary. Life 2.0 is the name.
