Seems Interesting, been reading bits and pieces about it from various sites.

http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2013/09/analysis-can-steamos-drag-the-pc-game-industry-over-to-linux/

Curious article from Ars Technica.

If they can pull it off in a small contained box behind the tv that streams from my PC or can install directly, it will be a great benefit to me, as I can play the Lego games with the mrs, as she doesn't like being in my mans room to play games, plus my TV is bigger than my monitor lol.

Got no room. Managed to get the Ouya to stream from my pc, but more graphic intensive game's are slow.

Most of the time I don't want my PC at my TV as Jem is watching Tele.

The best thing about this is basically it means you don't have to buy a copy of windows just to play games on it. (Or mess around with Linux).

It would have been very useful to me about a year ago when I built a media streamer for my TV.

Yeah this has been a huge problem for me for the past decade. Now all we need is AdobeOS so we can use Photoshop too.
