commented on Valve reveals linux-based SteamOS, but what is it?
My friend explains it. Basically it's a modified Linux Distro, that will be freely available for anyone to install onto whatever computer they want. The main modification is that it'll come with Steam auto-installed. The idea is that you build a Media PC that you hook up to your TV, that you then install SteamOS on, and it gives you Steam on your TV, which you can then play your games on.
