    Tired to get it to setup in a VM, but just couldn't get it to work (probably more me then the OS. Albeit, after watching the video it came clear to me that it would have been a waste of my time; just not into high end gaming, or using an OS that basically has no real means of using high end productivity software.

    SteamOS beta impressions: Well, Valve did warn you to wait

    It’s out! SteamOS—Valve’s living room-oriented operating system created primarily to run games—is finally here, in our office, running on a real machine.

    But notice how I didn’t say that it’s running on every machine in the office. Notice how I also didn’t say that it’s running on my home machine.

    We weren’t kidding when we wrote that you might want to wait before you install. Wait for how long? I don’t know, yet, but SteamOS as it stands today is rough

    It would appear that if you are into gaming a PS4, Xbox, or just a good old gaming computer will in the long run be less expensive.
