STANDARDS --
Razer is the latest company looking to promote open, cross-platform industry standards by joining The Khronos Group.

Razer joining The Khronos Group looks to be a VR/AR play, but will hopefully help further push Vulkan and other Khronos standards to gamers. The brief announcement at Khronos.org reads in part, "...Razer co-founded OSVR, an open-source platform that integrates VR, AR and mixed reality hardware and software APIs that support a universal VR ecosystem."

It will be interesting to see how Khronos further pushes open standards in the VR/AR space in 2017 and Vulkan powering Linux VR experiences.


I've used Razer mice almost exclusively at Phoronix for the past decade, but it's still a disappointment they don't provide any official Linux drivers/software but at least there are many community-based software projects.
