SteamOS: Valve announces Linux-based operating system




Valve has announced today SteamOS, a Linux-based operating system for the living room. It is said: “thousands of games, millions of users. Everything you like about Steam will soon be available as a free operating system, designed for TV and the living room. ” SteamOS is a version of Linux that is optimized for use with games on large screens. It will be available as a free, standalone operating system for systems in living rooms soon.

Manufacturer can license free system also. It is not yet something like Valve wants to bring the SteamOS in the living room of the Republic. Here the user must surely take care of your own living room PC, certainly third-party boxes will bring SteamOS on the market. Interesting seems that games have to be streamed from an existing machine – at least as I understand the following statement:

“Hundreds of games are already available on the new SteamOS. Keep in the coming weeks after announcements of AAA titles out that are made available for the SteamOS in 2014. Access the Steam catalog with over 3000 games and desktop sofware titles via in-home streaming “.

Sounds like the solution offered and Sony with the PS Vita, here you could stream games from the PlayStation. The official site for SteamOS found here .
