@trevorfsmith yes arch based distros worked well with my AMD 5700. I switched to Nvidia recently but stayed with Manjaro and it's been a breeze.

@trevorflowers oof I'm blowing you up this morning. Can I switch my mastodon account to your widerweb.org server?

@trevorfsmith with you. I strongly prefer Linux, and run Manjaro on all of my devices by default. But occasionally I am forced to boot into my windows drive due to some limitations. I always get in, and get out as fast as possible. Not that I hate windows or anything, I just identify with and strongly prefer Linux.

This picture accurately captures my excitement when I got this all working. Pathtraced rendering in a multi-user environment, with networked face tracking. I've been working hard on a lot of cutting-edge experiments with @janusxr lately, it's time to start sharing

I have had at least 12 people contact me in the last 2 weeks asking if this is me. The worst part is I am not entirely sure that it isn't me.

What we're currently missing:
- Affordable VR headset
- Affordable MR headset (e.g. Lynx)
- @unity@twitter.com OpenXR support for Linux
- XR-focused Linux distros (the components aren't quite ready though)
- Better Proton OpenXR support for Windows apps
- Qualcomm XR2 Linux drivers for DSP

We (AngellXR) are currently incubating projects such as the Open Metaverse Interoperability group (OMI). I currently serve as co-chair of OMI, provide guidance and mentorship to metaverse founders and investors, and teach Dataviz and Product at MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art).

Happy to see so many metaverse favorites on mastodon.
