    10 years go loads of people said Steam was pointless. "who wants to download games" they said.

    Why do the countdowns always use your computer clock?

    I can't really see a use for this at the moment.
    If I wanted to use Linux I could install one of the countless derivates out there...

    Let's what it's capable of on the steam box.

    I think it's mainly for a living room experience. I keep thinking of it as an extended 'Big picture mode'

    I've got a harddrive or two that I don't use any more kicking about. I'll try it on one of them

    I think SteamOS automatically boots into Big Picture Mode, I'm pretty sure that Gabe was mentioning having a SteamBox for your living room where it would automatically do that, perhaps this is part of it.

    For some odd reason I was just thinking of SteamOS on a RaspberryPi.

    Nvidia's fine as they've supported Linux in like forever, AMD though have recently started to bring their drivers to Linux.

    What about sound? Are there any drivers for sound cards? I couldn't get mine to work on linux last time I tried. Was a couple years ago though.

    OpenAL is a wrapper that does pretty much everything that's required, as long as you have the latest ALSA drivers then you'll be able to get your 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound with dolby or whatever from your Creative, etc. sound card. Realtek have been releasing Linux drivers for a long time now so your motherboard ought to be fine.
