Start Simula. Simula is developed using the game engine

The Linux desktop was displayed in VR.

When multiple windows are displayed, you can display the windows in front of yourself by turning your face toward the window you want to work on.

You can have a window at the bottom, but you'll have to work downwards, which seems a bit painful.

If the VR headset has a camera, it can also display the keyboard at hand in the VR space.

To use Simula, you need to prepare a VR headset compatible with SteamVR running on Linux, such as HTC Vive .
