  • SteamOS in 2018... Does it work?

    Back in December 2013, Steam announced a new operating system that would free us from Microsoft’s grip, so that we might enter gaming Nirvanah.

    What we got was SteamOS. And it’s kind of still in Beta…

    But first... What am I drinking?

    Tonight, Ninkasi's Dawn of the Red (Eugene, OR). It's a 7.0%, 66 IBU Red IPA. Pretty good taste. If you're just a fan of Reds, this is a bit hoppy. But for IPA lovers, this is a great brew.

    Pick up a Steam Link so you don't have to go through the hassle of SteamOS just to play games on the big screen: https://amzn.to/2Jz8WZe

    According to the latest Steam Hardware Survey, 98.31% of all machines on Steam are running some variant of Windows. This has been the story really since Windows 95 burst onto the scene with Its slew of DirectX APIs. It's nearly become the industry standard, with most games for both Windows and X-Box taking advantage.

    Enter Valve… They proclaimed a vision for the future of gaming back in December 2013. One that would be free from Microsoft’s hold on consumers. One where you could build a PC from off the shelf components, and download a free operating system where your entire library of games would await you. Or, you could purchase a SteamBox! A prebuilt gaming computer with Linux preinstalled from your favorite retailer.

    And Valve said… Let there be SteamOS! But… was it good?
