Carmack seems non plussed/optimistic, on Twitter he wrote:
"For the record, I am coding right now, just like I was last week.I expect the FB deal will avoid several embarrassing scaling crisis for VR."
"I have a deep respect for the technical scale that FB operates at. The cyberspace we want for VR will be at this scale."
"I suppose I will get a FB account now, so that may lead to some writing a little longer than tweet length…"
I can’t help but feel a little crushed by the acquisition, it seems so against the founding spirit of Oculus. On the flip side, VR for the masses means lots of work for me :)
