That's of course, if GabeN won't allow SteamOS to work on PC's natively.

Valve stated at: http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamOS/
"Users can alter or replace any part of the software or hardware they want."

It's a free download, you can install it on whatever you want.

SteamOS site
SteamOS, running on any living room machine,


A living room machine is a computer in your living room, so I'd say it's going to run native on just about any hardware.

SteamPC is a variant of Linux; why would it NOT dual boot?

You'd HAVE to dual boot if you still wanted to play your Windows only games :|
