Is Oculus VR future better with, or without Palmer Luckey?

I'm just curious on everyone's thought's about this. Do you think Palmer Luckey being forced out of Oculus by Facebook was a bad thing for the future of Oculus VR hardware?

Do you think we have lost his innovation and ideas? Or do you think the people in charge now will do just as good a job as he would with CV2 or even better?

I personally don't have enough information to make an informed decision on this either way, but my instincts tell me that it's a bad thing that he left. But I could be wrong?

Let me know your thoughts on this.

Bit more back on topic, the R&D has gone way beyond what Palmer would have envisioned and could ever have achieved had he not been bought out. He's got his cool 2 Bil, congrats I take my hat off to him for kickstarting what I'd been waiting for, for 30 years. Let it go, he's happy, he can mess about with some fringe stuff and who knows may come up with something new.

A sad day when even the Mods derail a thread with ponys and unicorns

For shame......
Look, man. I only need to know one thing: where they are.
