Valve Announces Linux Based System SteamOS

Hi everyone, I've just found out that Valve is going to make a Linux based OS called SteamOS. I honestly think that this is great that Linux is getting more support from Steam and hopefully we'll see more developments for Linux later on.

  • I was wondering how modifiable it will actually be. I read the cooperating system article where it mentions modification but it seems rather vague.
    Steam is not a one-way content broadcast channel, it’s a collaborative many-to-many entertainment platform, in which each participant is a multiplier of the experience for everyone else. With SteamOS, “openness” means that the hardware industry can iterate in the living room at a much faster pace than they’ve been able to. Content creators can connect directly to their customers. Users can alter or replace any part of the software or hardware they want. Gamers are empowered to join in the creation of the games they love. SteamOS will continue to evolve, but will remain an environment designed to foster these kinds of innovation.

    Now that you mention that, It looks like it might be customisable, only time will tell. Hope it's not going to be locked down like Chrome OS. It is a very vague and generic description of the customisability. Kinda up in the air right now.
