You use SteamOS with windows 7?
Isn't SteamOS its own operating system built on top of Debian?

Do you Dualboot or have it in a virtual box?

I use Windows and will continue to use Windows to do my gaming (as well as everything else).

I use what works best for me.

Far as SteamOS goes, I'm not interested in it.

I also use windows, i installed SteamOS in virtualbox, everything worked fine, everything seemed fine, however, i think it still has a way to go if im honest...

They also need to work on making windows games work on linux, surely that would be easier then porting all the games to linux, it would be easier just to find a way to support them??...

Valve should probably fix up Steam first before trying to implement it into their own Linux distribution. Steam still has a lot of problems in Windows and a lot more under Linux.

I have used steam on linux but prefer it on windows. Although I don't play as much as I used to, I find that there are flaws in loading the games. Maybe it's just me?
