    Same ******ing crap as nvidia shield. more of a workaround to get games working on the steambox which will probably be anounced later on.
    it will make steambox cheaper though since it wont require the hardware.

    Can't say I'm personally interested, Windows 7 does the job

    Ah, so that is how they are planning on getting round the fact over 90% of the games on Steam are Windows only.

    At least it made sense with Shield as that is portable and has a small screen, even the best st.reams are miles from the original image, and that is not even getting into how laggy it will feel compared to just using your own PC.

    I don't think there is a market for this, and surely the st. reaming nonsense is only going to hinder more games moving to native Open GL games on Linux.
    Still interested in what 2014 AAA games will be native, and if these games will be fully featured or optimisation for midrange living room hardware.

    The censorship of certain words makes commenting on this a pain, especially on a phone lol.

    Home network lag will add about 10-20ms on top of what there already is.

    And a lot of this is about getting developers to put out a proper linux version as well, these will run faster than their windows directx counterparts.

    Will it run faster while looking identical though?

    This is where I have a problem, PC versions of AAA games can be inconsistent at best, surely having two versions will mean more buggy games?

    I wonder if the thing Mark Rein was talking about at Nvidia is the steam console? They already have the hardware ******ing down from steam due to the shield.

    I hope this encourages publishers to make Linux ports for their Steam games, except EA the laggard ofcourse.

    Home network lag is nothing and no where near 10-20ms, not even close. Encoding the video and audio is what causes the overhead.

    lol, probably will be for Gabe if Valve spend too much money on this.

    As much as I think there is not anywhere near a big enough market for this I am looking forward to trying the OS out.
