SteamOS Announced

The countdown on the Steam Living Room page has concluded, and this page has details on SteamOS, "available soon as a free operating system designed for the TV and the living room," the promised announcement about Valve's future plans for Linux and Steam. This is the first of three planned announcements on the topic, so expect more to come in about 48 hours when the next countdown concludes. Here's word:

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.

Cool, now all you pc gamers can make your own console. lol

Remember, you can only play Steam games with this, so you know what more game devs are going to do, right? Ditch Steam, and then all you'll have is new TF2 hats. lol

Game devs are starting to make more money on phone and tablet games anyway. I'd be surprised if this does anything.
