    The only 2 advantages SteamOS has over Windows is that Valve is an awesome company (better than MS IMO) and it is good for HTPCs. Other than that, it is trash.The only way a high end machine would succeed with SteamOS, is if it was dual booted with Windows, otherwise there is no point in dumping $2000 onto a water cooled Steam machine. But what I dont understand is why would you need to play a game on Linux when you could play it on Windows. Unless there is a noticeable performance improvement, I see no use.
