In a broader context, Zuckerberg hinted at the emergence of a new open vs. closed model rivalry in the virtual reality landscape. He said, "The reality is that every generation of computing has an open and a closed model," positioning Meta as the open model for the next generation.

Zuckerberg expressed a desire for the open model to prevail. He said, "In mobile, Apple's closed model won. It's not always that way. If you go back to the PC era, Microsoft's open model was the winner. In this next generation, Meta is going to be the open model, and I really want to make sure that the open model wins out again. The future is not yet written."
