With the first of three countdowns on their website running out just now, Valve has announced SteamOS. "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," the company begins. "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."
What are your thoughts on the first of these developments? It's not quite the Steam Box that everyone was expecting, but there are still two announcements to go, so who knows! Let us know in the comments below or come discuss with us on Facebook or Twitter! We'd love to hear your thoughts!
