Interestingly, Valve has really come through with their own operating system called SteamOS, obviously named after the PC/Mac app by the name of Steam, the world’s most popular way of playing first-rate PC games. Besides having access to a streamed archive of all the current Windows or Mac games, the Steam OS already has major game developers on board with Linux, and will be building triple-A game titles that will run endemically by 2014.
Valve isn’t only focused on games, but music and video, so the creation of a living room operating system is actually a solid concept, in this instance.
There isn’t much else that Valve talked about with SteamOS: it will be used on some sort of device. Which is actually quite neat, because the gaming company has two more announcements this week, which have not been detailed.
