I disagree completely. Building a lite gaming OS would be one thing but creating a heavily restricted environment designed to push a digital store and DRM technology is not the same. This is more akin to a console, and I'd rather have my Windows PC connect to an HDTV, where Steam, Origin, Uplay, and more importantly GoG, Kickstarter and HumbleBundle acquired games all work on even grounds.

No it's not, it's a completely open platform. It's a Linux distribution that will have fully available source and be completely open to change, go read up on it on the web site. Steam is just the app that will load first in the window manager. It is the exact opposite of a closed console.
