Oculus Rift porting users to Windows 10

Oculus Rift

The creators of Oculus Rift believe that the majority of owners of VR devices use Windows 10, that’s why they will stop supporting Windows 7 and 8. At the same time, the henchmen of Gates have updated the minimum requirements for their products.

Do not be afraid, your devices will not stop working. Despite the fact that Microsoft does not support Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, all the usual functions and applications for Rift will remain operational. But everything that comes out later will be focused only on Windows 10.

The thing is that some of the next update Rift Core 2.0 will not be able to work without a dozen. If you are an unfortunate user of technologies that will become relevant only after a few years, you probably noticed in the settings beta version of this update. So, users of older OS will not be able to use the control panel.
