SteamVR Getting Linux And Mac OS X Support

According to this report, Valve has said that it will launch beta versions of its SteamVR platform for Mac OSX and Linux users within a few months. Whether or not Valve actually hits that timeframe is another thing altogether.

Ludwig presented a screenshot (seen at the top of this article) of SteamVR running on Linux (distribution undefined), powered by the open source graphics API Vulkan, in turn powering an HTC Vive VR headset. Ludwig goes on to say that "we’re actively working on support for both OSX and Linux and we hope to get support for both of them into a beta in the next few months."
