Valve Announcements

SteamOS-logo

New Valve announcement.
Yep, it's SteamBox: http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamMachines/

But what's interesting is that it's not just a console made by Valve. They say they've got other manufactures ready to make their own machines running SteamOS. Not to mention that they clarified that SteamOS is meant to be run on any PC hardware, not just especially made hardware. Finally:

Can I hack this box? Run another OS? Change the hardware? Install my own software? Use it to build a robot?
Sure.

I'm so glad they get it.

So, to sum up the last two announcements: "We made a Linux distro, we are making hardware companies support Linux, and we are selling Linux boxes"
