Valve has not quite yet finished their SteamOS yet, which will bring a Linux powered gaming console to your living room. Well you don’t have to wait, Alienware has created a Steam box using Windows:
This $550 machine looks really cool! Can’t wait to see a machine like this running SteamOS. Would like to see that price get a little lower too. Is this the sort of thing that will really make Linux a popular home operating system? If you think about the Internet of Things, we will still need some sort of base station or home base. Why not an uber Linux powered gaming, music playing, movie playing, streaming machine? If the price gets down to say $300, look out.
We live in interesting times. :)
