    LOL, i'm not sure that Debian and Slackware users agree with you

    FWIW, i use Slackware since i started to use Linux....Slackware 8.0 at that time....
    I also use Debian and Mint (XFCE edition).

Has for the 500GB, games are kind of not the smallest software when it come to size, so you recommend a decent enough size to system builder.
    Ars Techina installed SteamOS using the 2.2GB zip extracted to USB pen in a 500GB HDD....final result ? 406GB Still free

    That's enough for from 20 to 50 AAA titles.

    Is it related to "mirroring" option that let us recover everything is something goes wrong with instalation ?

    In that case , i assume that if you try to install SteamOS is a 500GB HDD, it will be "split" in two of 250GB with 2nd 250GB used to mirror and recover the 1st 250GB ?

    TIA,
