Phoronix: Valve's Gabe Newell Makes New Linux Comments
Valve's Gabe Newell did a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" where several Linux questions were posed...
This is huge:
Of course, it doesn't mean that everyone will magically install Linux in their computers. But it will be incredibly easy to set up a tremendously functional low cost PC: Google Chrome for Web + Office, Steam for Games. It is a great day to be a Linux user.Gabe expects all of Valve's games will run on Linux/SteamOS

Systemd by now is an easy choice, can't lose.
X.org isn't gone, wayland isn't ready yet. Libreoffice for most MS office users is a pita.
To sum it up, while it's getting better, desktop Linux isn't there yet about quality.
On the "exclusive titles" topic.
I think is ok no exclusive titles at the moment.... BUT
TIME EXCLUSIVES could help the Steam Machines a lot.
Kinda how DOTA2 was exclusive to windows while on beta, linux/steamOS could have time or beta exclusives as an extra reward for early adopting these new devices.
The future of gamming is android on smartphones, right now is PS3 and XBOX360, PC gamming is near to dead
