SteamOS brewmaster update 2.87 released
This is the same content that was released in the last beta. Notable change is the new NVIDIA driver to enable support for the new 1080 and 1070 cards. There is also a new AMD driver for the "Bonaire" GPUs. Updated installers are also available

READ THIS IF YOU HAVE AN AMD GRAPHICS CARD
  • The new AMD driver is ONLY enabled if you have a "Bonaire" GPU
  • We will be enabling the new driver for other GPUs as AMD completes testing.
  • If you have problems or bugs with the new driver, please report them to AMD's Steam Linux forum[community.amd.com] which AMD will be monitoring.

Thank you for your continued SteamOS support!

Hmmm.... I would have enabled the new AMD driver also for Polaris GPUs even if not properly tested, because those users cannot fallback to Catalyst and then SteamOS can't be used at all.

I really want to feel SteamOS..
But I understand it, without dancing with a tambourine it is impossible to install the second system without formatting HDD or on a VirtualBox with a i5 3570 ? :((((

Someday there will be a Live version ? And that to me, as a person not very knowledgeable of Linux, afraid to climb in such jungle :)

For the people wondering, this update adds support for the newer Nvidia GTX 1070 and 1080 graphics cards.

I should also make Nvidia users able to play Vulkan games.

SteamOS can be installed on VMWare Player, you can download and it running in approximately an hour. Instructions:

http://www.vmwareandme.com/2014/01/guide-installing-steamos-on-vmware.html

Running it in VMWare is very usefull to test things, but for actual gaming you want a native install.

Live is complicated, because Steam needs storage to store your Steam Library.

Why not use a second hard drive?

And eh... WIndows is the jungle. SteamOS is switch on and start playing.

To log in to your account you will need even under a virtual machine ?

Because i haven't got a second HDD :D:

I wonder if Valve are going to develop their own DE or are we going to sit on GNOME ? :((
Because of this SteamOS doesn't look "full" product..

a hard drive hardly costs any money these days, well worth buying. even if you end up don't liking steamos, you'll have extra storage, you'll need it sooned than later

Steam is the DE, Gnome is not really much of a feature of SteamOS. Most SteamOS users will never use Gnome and Valve does not officially support it.

I think the Nvidia GTX 1060 isn't supported yet, though.
