Any game on linux is a good start and brings more people. Let's hope others will follow soon. Let's also hope that it's not just some advertisement for IW.

Sadly, the Xi3 Piston will be a Windows PC, at least initially. However, don't give up hope for non-Valve AAA titles on Linux yet. This is not Valve's official Steam Box, which has yet to be announced other than its conformation. All we know is that the official Steam Box will run Linux, but not the Piston.

Apparently the hardware specs for the Xi3 Piston aren't that good anyway.

Exactly. With that in mind, Valve immediately shut down the rumor of it being the official Steam Box.

Steam Box might just be something worth getting. I'm not normally into consoles, but hey, if Steam Box == Linux Box and the price is reasonable, I don't see a reason not to get one :)
