Oculus was certainly involved in the Andreesen Horowitz deal

That is true. I'm sure they were not that naive, but maybe I will give the benefit of the doubt; either way, the situation is kind of a mess, and could have been side stepped but $2b, (or $75m) is a lot of money, can't say I'd have the willpower to necessarily turn either offer down if I were in their shoes...they are a bigger company with lots of employees...not exactly a one man decision and I guess you have to think about what is best for the group. If I were offered a huge sum of money, it would not be worth it for me to take it unless I could be guaranteed total freedom, which usually is not the case - I'd rather have enough money and freedom than a buttload of it and some handcuffs. :)
