To remember the goodwill that these guys had at the beginning. This is a tragedy, and a predictable one at that.

Of course, as soon as Facebook got involved, you knew a userbase betrayal was in the works

Selling to Facebook was a userbase betrayal.

I was an oculus supporter for quite a while - but the latest moves by them are rapidly making me rethink my position. It's not entirely clear if this is facebook pushing it, or the oculus team, or if we can even make that distinction anymore. In any case, it's a series of very bad decisions that I simply can't agree with regardless of what department is making them.

Lucky told us that Facebook would stay out of the business/technical decisions, but it wouldn't be the first time he's lied to us about the product.

With a guy like John Carmack behind it, I don't agree that it was all that predictable. Now, the question in my mind is, is Oculus such a shit show that it negates what he has done for the gaming community while at id?

Does Bill Gates donating millions and millions to charities and humanitarian projects negate what he did while CEO of Microsoft? I don't think it does, but I also think that people are capable of good and evil in the same lifetime.
