I guess i need to install steam, but that also means pulseaudio
Don't worry, I've known more than one person (in the Steam Beta group chat etc) to run Steam and for example TF2 just fine with pure ALSA. As droste said, you just need to make SDL use the ALSA backend as default instead of Pulse.
Sure, but for me the distinction was that Mac had basically one OS while a PC was defined by hardware compatibility rather than being a hardware/software package, essentially a "blank page" that could run the operating system of your choice -- OS/2, Unix, DOS, QNX, Netware, UCSD p-system... even Linux eventually.
Windows was just one of many... and Microsoft was a Unix vendor for a while with their Xenix offering.
