HP pressured Microsoft to finally update the Windows Mixed Reality UI. The headset currently boots up to one of two home environments, apparently they still take up resources while you're using other things. The update lets you replace them with a void and a list of apps

It also allows you to skip that area and go directly to SteamVR on headset startup, an upgrade from my current process (enter nerd house -> fire up Desktop window -> find Steam -> target/click tiny SteamVR button -> enter other nerd house where I can actually do things)


The default WMR spaces feel weirdly hostile, also; some VRChat worlds recognize that it's comforting seeing human amenities even if you can't physically access them (like kitchens, bathrooms, and exit doors). Cliff House and Skyloft are offices with couches and little else
