Valve have made their Steam OS available for download, but bare in mind this is a early beta, so if you’re looking for the full experience, you’ll have to wait until later on in 2014.

Steam OS is based on the lightweight Linux operating system removing the middleman like Windows or OS X. The benefit of this over the current system is yet to be seen and with Linux’s small selection of working games it seems like a lot of work, but I can’t wait to see the results.

Valve has come out and said, “Unless you’re an intrepid Linux hacker already… we’re going to recommend that you wait until later in 2014 to try it out.”  So be carful if you don’t really know what your doing.

If you still want to give it a shot the download link is here with installation instructions here.
