Apparently the Oculus Quest 2 requires you to sign in with a Facebook account.
Apparently it also uses a somewhat standard SoC (Snapdragon XR2, a modified Snapdragon 865) and runs Android.
Hopefully this motivates some people to get GNU/Linux running on it, even if it probably won't be blobless for a few years.
Note that the reason I named GNU/Linux instead of another Free operating system like Parabola BSD, Haiku, or even Alpine Linux is because most vendors have some level of official support for GNU/Linux operating systems.
GNU/Linux on the Nintendo Switch, for example, is more-or-less a slightly modified version of Nvidia's own official GNU/Linux distro shipped with Tegra X1 development boards.
Seeing other OSs would be great, but realistically (blobbed) GNU/Linux (or AOSP?) will be the first.
This is why people prefer copyleft licenses for things they feel are at risk of being leeched off of from a large hardware vendor. If they violate the license and refuse to release the source for their modifications, there's at least a chance it can be forced out of them after a court battle.

Really great stuff came out of that.
A friendly mastodon instance primarily for shitposting, gays, and the glory of the free and open source software movement.
