Still would not recommend getting a Quest2 because of facebook, but getting it to work with a Linux desktop is cool for sure.
Can you de-facebook the quest so you aren’t tied to proprietary servers? I don’t mind activating the thing one time, but I really dislike it being possible to suddenly stop working when the servers are down or the software isn’t supported on newer OSes…
So far that is AFAIK not possible. In theory it runs a custom Android so there is hope that at some point it might be jailbreakable, but that would likely require alternative inside-out tracking software, which is still very experimental and not yet ported to Android.
Gaming on the GNU/Linux operating system.
