Steam is coming to a new operating system
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.
Could this do for gaming platforms what Android did for smartphones? To be fair I haven't been a gamer since my teenage years so am not hugely interested other than the fact that more acceptance of Linux by the public can only be a good thing.
