    162/256 games in my library are on Linux. I only buy Linux games now. No one is betting on SteamOS or SteamMachines to compete with consoles. The best I hope for is that when game companies do a cost/benefit analysis of publishing a client on Linux that the value is positive. That is the goal I hope SteamOS and Steam Machines help achieve.

    Currently, 1/3 of the games in my catalog are available for GNU/Linux.
    And thanks to Valve's initiative we also got GOG.com supporting GNU/Linux.

    SteamOS based computers will remain niche for sure. Windows gaming is niche already, compared to consoles. But that is not the only Valve product: they have steamlink and so on.

    Anyways, thinks can only improve: Vulkan, newer Linux kernel releases with incremental performance improvements, newer window protocols for desktop applications which improve the dated X.Org.

    I think steam machines are going to successfully retain a niche market. Not come close to competing with current consoles in numbers, yet be sustainable anyway...

    But whatever happens Valve foraying into Linux has had a tremendously positive impact on Linux gaming. Number of games, developer attitudes, Vulkan push, tools/ecosystem, a lot of good has happened and is happening which they were directly involved in.
