SteamOS Beta Build is Available For Download

 

machines_livingroom

Valve’s SteamOS is now available for everybody for download. You can download the Beta version of this operating system from Steam’s repositories. Only if you are ready to face those early bugs. The Linux-based operating system weighs in at 960MB, and is a fork of Debian. Currently it only supports Nvidia graphics cards, as AMD and Intel graphics drivers are still a work in progress, but you can install it anyway!

Even for now there aren’t much games on Linux but this bold move by Steam might bridge that gap. Still that bold statement is tempered by the ability to stream games from a Windows PC to SteamOS over a local area network, though how much it’s tempered will depend on how well streaming works.
