I have been thinking about trying SteamOS but I wanted to hear some thoughts on it. I mean I can always try it out and then switch if I don't like it. I don't know a lot about it but here are a few things I do know:
1) Valve is committed to SteamOS and from what I hear they are getting good vendor support (AMD, NVIDIA) because it's a big market 2) It is based on a fork of debian (wheezy I think) 3) It is free as-in no cost to you 4) Not completely free as-in freedom, I think there is some proprietary code still, like the Steam Client 5) Can be used as you would any other Desktop OS
Have you tried it out yet? Are you going to try it out instead of some other linux distro? What have you heard about it so far?
(Regarding the title of this post bistro = distro)
