SteamOS

Last Update: 2019-09-29 15:52 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 (139), 6 months: 87 (138), 3 months: 86 (138), 4 weeks: 87 (141), 1 week: 85 (141)

Average visitor rating: 6.33/10 from 9 review(s).
