Was just wondering if anyone has tried installing and running the SteamOS yet?

http://store.steampowered.com/steamos/buildyourown

I'm looking at installing it on my old media PC which just (I think) meets the requirements.
Just to have a play and see what they've come up with. I built a "Steam Box" a while ago using a Linux box and big picture mode which worked alright.

Any thoughts and feelings on this?

I think it's good if you have a spare system to try it on, I'd try it on my main PC but I don't have my licence key anymore to revert back. Windows 10 may also put me off getting this as well but will see what happens when that comes out.

The SteamOS games library is putting me off having this as a full time system. As its Linux based not a huge amount to choose from, for now.
Will give it a try and share my thoughts on it hopefully this weekend if I'm not in too much self afflicted pain!! :()>

Yeah, when I looked a while back the ATI Linux drivers were woeful and game library was so small it wasn't even worth bothering.

Might be a bit better now Steam OS has been out there for a while but I doubt I'd ever bother, Windows does just fine for me.
