since VALVe announced, that the HTC Vive will have Linux support on day one, i am wondering whether you'll show some love for the penguins again :)

Yeah it'll be easy for us to support Linux/Mac on release

VR won't support Mac for some, if any time. As Palmer Luckey stated, Macs just don't have the graphical processing power required to run VR. In theory they could help with mods only, but where's the fun in that? XD

By mods do you mean gutting it and putting a PC inside the case because theres really not much to upgrade with macs except for maybe a few measly sticks of ram and it's hard drive. Heck you'd probably be better off trying to build a hackintosh at this point. At Least it would cost you less.

looking forward to linux support (I run 99% linux) but had to buy a windows pc so I could play this on the vive....what we all want is to be able to create ANYTHING using modbox....I would have liked to be able to do 5d minmapping for instance....could we have voicerecognition in modbox instead of typing? would be nice to be able to talk to modbox and back again...
