The main focus on Quest Pro will be (the future of) work, not gaming.
Microsoft and Meta are two companies that don’t have yet a platform, although they are not in a similar position. Microsoft missed mobile and Meta missed building & controlling their ecosystem.

Apple was close to bankruptcy in the ’80 because they imagined their product around consumers, not enterprise.

Companies realised that it is in their own interest to have PCs for their employees, not only at work, but also at home.

My 2 cents are that Microsoft doesn’t have anything to lose by finding a new IBM, but META might be too early. Their shareholders will ask for their rights if there are not convincing results in the short term. Isn’t it better for them to ask for their fair share (ie. dividends) and invest that money in a VR/AR start-up? History tells that this is the natural way forward.
