SteamOS is upon us! Introduction What is Steam OS? It is Valve's operating system (so think Windows, OSX, etc) that is designed for games and for living room play. It is there version of a console. The OS is based on Debian, a version of Linux which means a lot of things can already be done as various apps and such can be slightly modified for Steam OS. Some features that makes Steam OS stand out is it will be designed for games, so it will be able to get better performance from hardware then your standard Windows installation. Also you will be able to stream games from a Windows computer. What that means is that say you want to play Civilization 5 (Civ 5) in your living room. Normally Civ 5 isn't on Linux, therefore Steam OS, you can start the game on your windows machine in your study room and be able to play it on your Steam machine while sitting on your coach. Beta The Beta for the OS is out now and because of it being a beta, there will be bugs and missing features (like streaming), and it may involve a lot of work to use. http://store.steampowered.com/steamos/buildyourown magnet:?xt=urn:btih:1e4dae83371ba704d5d89e1828068ef0c4151e32&dn=SteamOSInstaller.zip&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.openbittorrent.com%3A80%2Fannounce&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.publicbt.com%3A80%2Fannounce permalinksourceparentreportsave-RESgive goldreply Warning: *Do NOT install if you are not competent with a computer! *This will erase your HDD.
