Default Steam OS

Because of concern about the direction of Windows 8 (which has its own app store), Valve have developed their own OS (based on Debian) designed for use on console-like devices. Several well known manufacturers have already revealed 'Steam Machine' prototypes, but you can also build your own and just buy the Steam Controller.

Anyone else been following these developments? Even if I don't buy or build a Steam Machine I've already seen the benefit of increased interest in game development for Linux, but will it be enough to pull gamers from Windows?

Will be enough to increase the popularity of Linux based viruses that's for sure.

I think I mentioned a while ago that I'd have a Linux desktop machine if most of my games ran on it.

Steam is doing great things for Linux and OSX by showing support but it will come down to developers and middleware (Unreal Engine, CryTek, etc) to support them too.
