    The post on the least-reliable-website-in-the-world contains information on the Wednesday and Friday updates to Valve's website. In just a couple hours, if the website reveals the Steambox reference specs, you may want to go read that 4chan post.

    Steam = annoining Internet based DRM = game as a service (until service quits)

    I think the same way.

    But in the long run it'll affect us.

    Because if Steam becomes the defacto standard for Linux games, then we'll forget to see propietary Linux games DRM-free (as it happend until now).

    My hope is that this will get more game developers working on GNU/Linux ports, so they experience firsthand the positive sides of free software.

    From http://repo.steampowered.com/hometes...amd64/Packages it looks like it's using Ubuntu 12.04, X.org and nVidia/AMDs blobs.

    I look forward to having a broken console every time I update my GPU drivers!

    200 USD can be

    Today I have just read about 1 online TB FREE FOR LIFE from spotbros

    So perhaps with a small 64 Gb SDD plus 4Gb of RAM and the 100 USD Intel Atom box ...

    You can have a pretty good 200 USD gaming console

    But AMD with their SoCs also can do that price and AMD is the same hardware than consoles

    Of course this 200 USD box would be a cheap minimum specs that would be so good that ...

    perhaps would end at some desktops as PCs
