The Free Operating System that You Can Hack, Hack, Hack
Valve emphasized the fact that SteamOS will be a free operating system and will continue to be so throughout its existence. At its core, this operating system is based on Linux, so the company's invitation to hack SteamOS according to one's desire is totally understandable. Playing Windows video games on Linux using Wine is cumbersome, and the offer for Linux gamers isn't particularly diverse. An operating system built around the Steam platform would definitely mean an important change. In other words, this might represent the big chance the gaming world has of shifting PC gaming to Linux.
