    Phoronix: SteamOS "Brewmaster" Is Valve's New Debian 8.1 Based Version

    Brewmaster is Valve's codename for the next version of SteamOS currently available in a preview state. SteamOS Brewmaster is based on Debian 8.1 stable...

    There's no word if the "Brewmaster" codename was influenced due to when I delivered beer to the Valve Linux developers on the behalf of Phoronix readers and the Linux community.
    It's a hero in Dota2. Also, wasn't the previous release named "Alchemist"? So Alpha -> Beta maybe?

      It was basically just a joke and to toss in another article for those that weren't reading Phoronix a few years ago.

        Turns out Michael is in fact Brewmaster

        Btw. afaik the first SteamOS was called Alchemist (a hero from Dota, too) and not Alchemy.

          Is there a way to benchmark the SteamOS compositor vs, say, compiz in Ubuntu, kwin in kde, etc.?

            I hope they fixed or are looking into some of the issues with their older release:

              So the next version... Clockwerk? Crystal Maiden? Centaur Warrunner? Clinkz?

              Sadly, we're going to have to wait quite a bit for SteamOS "Techies"

                Does this mean even SteamOS has now switched to systemd?

                  Don't they... kinda not use any of the current init systems? iirc, it just kinda boots the kernel, starts X and then starts Steam + any associated programs. It's not like it has a desktop environment or too many other things running in the background.

                    Upgrades are always good - less compliants from new hardware users, more from old
