tl;dr: SteamVR 1.16 brings full OpenXR compliance into SteamVR. Since Oculus also does that, you could start migrating to OpenXR and only have to maintain 1 API instead of the current 2 (SteamVR and Oculus). That would also be super helpful for the people running WMR headsets since the performance gain should be substantial by just utilizing OpenXR alone (WMR via SteamVR copies the framebuffer between the 2, not the most elegant solution).

You don't stop playing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop playing.
