Valve unveils SteamOS, a PC operating system for living room | Brier Dudley's blog | Seattle Times

A new "living room machine" platform competitor
"Called SteamOS, it’s based on Linux and an interface that Valve developed to run its Steam game service on TVs and other large screens.
By producing a full operating system as some predicted, Valve is challenging Microsoft, Apple and others developing PC-like systems to deliver games and online media content to TV sets. Valve’s advantages include its huge library of premium games, a global fan base and its use of an open platform that contrasts sharply with the closed-garden, app-centric models that others are pursuing.
SteamOS will be “available soon as a free stand-alone operating system for living room machines,” Valve said in an online post this morning."
