Windows 10 (Bedrock), edition: This version of Minecraft can be purchased from the Microsoft Store. This version has VR capabilities and can be set up quickly. However, it can't be modified in the same manner as the Java version.

Java edition: This is the original Minecraft version that comes with tons of mods for free online. Although it is more difficult to get this version running in VR because you will need to install Java, Steam and Steam VR if not already done so, the implementation is much more fun.
