Steam and Linux ready to take the step forward? http://www.cyberciti.biz/linux-games/valve-announces-linux-based-steamos/

Quote by ****ing Badass News
As we've been working on bringing Steam to the living room, we’ve come to the conclusion that the environment best suited to delivering value to customers is an operating system built around Steam itself. SteamOS combines the rock-solid architecture of Linux with a gaming experience built for the big screen. It will be available soon as a free stand-alone operating system for living room machines.


Im stoked, what do you guys think?

I'm excited for it. They should be announcing the SteamOS based console in two days I believe. It'll be interesting to see if this pushes a lot of AAA development for Linux.

Honestly it could open up a whole new way of gaming. Say you have an 80" tv, killer setup. Instead of playing the Xbox or PS3 version of a game like Farcry 3, for random example, you can stream it onto the SteamOS machine and play it on the killer setup--with no latency issues! It's so brilliant. Has the potential to seriously piss off Microsoft and Sony.

Saw it earlier today, I still don't understand the point of it. If I can run Steam on a full operating system and still have a computer there, why install this on something?

I think it's great. Looks like Microsoft are gonna lose a lot of customers.

I don't really seeing it having a huge impact on the traditional PC market. You could dual-boot SteamOS with Windows, and use it as a dedicated gaming OS because it'll be less resource hungry than Windows, but the true purpose of it will be as a console replacement. You could either
a) build or buy a low-powered SteamOS computer for streaming games from a gaming PC, plus use as an HTPC
b) build a powerful SteamOS computer that you would use instead of a gaming PC. Basically a console on roids.

What is the difference from regular Steam?

Steam is an application. This is an operating system.

As a PC gamer and a big Steam user, I'm struggling to think of a scenario where this is necessary. At the end of the day you still need a high-end gaming machine in order to run the games, and if I want to use a TV as a monitor it's easier to use the HDMI out from my video card to connect. Although, if they can demonstrate significant improvements in performance and stability using SteamOS vs Windows 7, it's definitely something to consider.

Anything that makes me not have to use Windows is a step in the right direction.

My computer is a on the opposite side of my house as my family's TV. If I could build something with the power of an HTPC that I could stream games from my PC with, plus use for netflix, streaming from my home media server, etc. it would be incredibly useful. Plus it opens up a lot of possibilities for local multiplayer on PC.

It runs on Linux, so you're really only gaining the neckbeards who like Linux as a concept but don't know how to work it.

Would be a good idea if Steam's UI wasn't complete wank.

And lets face it, anyone who doesn't use Windows (unless they actually utilize Mac's superior music/video editing software) is a ****, but people who will use this Steam OS are next level cunts.
