I had my doubts about mesh coming to SL, especially after trying some of the new mesh clothing - I was quite distressed about having to change my shape to fit the clothing, but I will refrain from dissing anything because it's still in the early mesh stages, and what do I know about making clothing anyways?
But when I tp'd into Mesh Mellows and things started to rez on my screen, I will admit to feeling a little bit of that same excitement when I first found SL - so many possibilities. I'm looking forward to seeing how mesh unfolds in SL. I think it has a lot of potential.
(you will need a mesh enabled viewer to see this build. I used v3 beta. As far as I know, the only other TPV that has mesh so far is Kirsten's viewer)
