Oculus Rift Will Be Windows Only For The Foreseeable Future

Gadgets No Comments on Oculus Rift Will Be Windows Only For The Foreseeable Future 18

Sadly Oculus will not be useable on Mac’s or Linux machines for the foreseeable future.

Our development for OS X and Linux has been paused in order to focus on delivering a high quality consumer-level VR experience at launch across hardware, software, and content on Windows. We want to get back to development for OS X and Linux but we don’t have a timeline.

This isn’t overly surprising, but disappointing since so many “creative” professionals use Mac’s.

For the conspiracy theorists out there it should be acknowledged that Microsoft reportedly owns around 1.5% of Facebook, which in turn owns Oculus (http://whoownsfacebook.com).

I am Eli "the Computer Guy" and have been in the tech industry for approx. 20 years doing all kinds of odd projects. I started as an electronics tech in the US Army, worked in corporate IT during the IT Boom, was an individual consultant and grew my tech shop to have numerous full time employees and supported small business clients with computer repair/ server maintenance/ web development/ surveillance systems/ telephone systems until the great recession. After that I started creating video training on all the topics I know and now have a YouTube Channel with over 500K subscribers. I am the founder of GeekBrainDump.com and my plan is to create a tech "news" site that I would actually find useful if I was still in the server room.
