SteamOS

Last Update: 2018-03-24 02:03 UTC


SteamOS is a Debian-based Linux distribution designed to run Valve's Steam and Steam games. It also provides a desktop mode (GNOME) which can run regular Linux applications. In addition to a stable Debian base, SteamOS features various third-party drivers and updated graphics stack, a newer Linux kernel with long-term support, and a custom graphics compositor designed to provide a seamless transition between Steam, its games and the SteamOS system overlay. The base operating system is open-source software, but the Steam client is proprietary.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 89 (134), 6 months: 84 (133), 3 months: 89 (138), 4 weeks: 86 (144), 1 week: 77 (141)

Average visitor rating: 6.14/10 from 7 review(s).
