I think getting "pushed" to Linux implies sun-setting Windows 7 (MS stops support and development on that platform declines significantly) and having everything Windows 8 and later go the way of the walled garden. That's years away. Even then, if Valve provides an "easier" solution (e.g. a console box) I think people would opt for that over tinkering with Linux. The console would sit on a desk and people would invest in a decent KVM switch.
