    Make with the details.

    Quote:
    SteamOS is a fork (derivative) of Debian GNU/Linux. The first version (SteamOS 1.0) is called ‘alchemist’ and it is based on the Debian ‘wheezy’ (stable 7.1) distribution.
    The major changes made in SteamOS are:

    Backported eglibc 2.17 from Debian testing
    Added various third-party drivers and updated graphics stack (Intel and AMD graphics support still being worked on)
    Updated kernel tracking the 3.10 longterm branch (currently 3.10.11)
    Custom graphics compositor designed to provide a seamless transition between Steam, its games and the SteamOS system overlay
    Configured to auto-update from the Valve SteamOS repositories

    I got to say am tempted to throw this bitch on a virtual machine and see how she handle. Somebody is sure going to post a repo that will allow peoples to roll it on top of an existing Linux build soon anyway.

    Yes, it’s Debian BUUUUUT with up-to-date Kernel and eglibc, these are 2 core components so I wouldn’t call it vanilla Debian. (Curious to see what other components they ship with, besides Xorg and the usual core stuff)

    BTW, Debian was totally the right choice for Valve. It’s kinda lame as a desktop OS but it’s the most awesome platform to build upon.
