At 1st glance is disappointing but will save Valve from a lot of customer service problems with stupid users used to use a stupid console like PSx or XBOXxxx.
I don't think anyone sane wants to use desktop ui or LibreOffice in their TELEVISION. It has nothing to do with stupidity.

I have big mythtv setup in my house and running any desktop environment in frontends would be very bad user experience. Using desktop when relaxing in livingroom (after working with computers for a day) would make me cringe.
