Not like Linux, it is Linux. If interested follow for news on games.

LOL - so true - very few games for the Mac. I'm also a console guy (xbox360), but looking to upgrade - seriously interested in the new steam box.

So wait, we'll be able to have Steam OS on Macs, as a second system?

And with this we won't have to worry if the game is on mac or windows, because we'll be running it on the new OS? Or am I wrong?

I would have thought that the Steam OS would be able to play most, if not all of the games! I can't wait!
PinkVoxel Sep 25, 2013 @ 2:19pm 
I think they stated, that it will be able to run ALL of the games :)

Just to get clear:
- SteamOS is linux based OS => it can only run those games made for Linux
- On any modern Mac you can dual/triple/etc boot almost any modern OS
- SteamOS should encourage developers to use OpenGL, which ultimately will result in more native OS X games

So for Mac users this is probably good [More native games; More OSes- more competition, better for end user].

A lot of the core technologies people will use to create SteamOS games will mean that Mac versions are even more a reality. Bye, bye, DirectX.

Great news

It's based on Debian. If you can install Debian in your computer, you can install Steam OS.
I don't know if it's possible with boot camp, as I'm using OSX in a regular computer and I don't need to use any tool to install any other OS, but almost sure it will be installed same way as installing Windows.
