Ubuntu sucks. I use Crunchbang Linux, it just makes browsing and watching movies easier than Windows 7 imo (of course I go back to windows for gaming).

I'm sure I'll use a distro that's modified from SteamOS in the future as game support increases.

I'd way rather have Linux than Windows. Why not? It's free. I wouldn't have to buy Windows every few years.

The only issue with Linux is the support, so of course I'd like more Linux support.

As long as there are benefits to the entire ecosystem sure.

Yeah, gaming is the only reason I have a Windows install still, and it's only a small handful of games that I can't get running in Wine.

So if I could play the games I wanted to in Linux, I finally could stop rebooting my computer all the time... which would be nice.

As long as the pros of Linux aren't sacrificed for the sake of appealing to a larger audience I'm all for it.

Yes, it would be nice if the product FOSS advocates are pushing was usable.

I'm indifferent because I don't use Linux for anything other than school. - Popularity =/= Quality. - Opinions =/= Truth.

I'd like it if Linux became a highly-polished piece of OSS like Firefox. But I don't think that will happen, as an OS is far more complex than a browser. The OSS community can't even get an office suite or photoshop clone to be good, so I think an OS is definitely out of the question.

Still, I'd like to at least try SteamOS to see if Valve has the skills to backup their talk.

BSD is one of the most polished operating systems out there, it just doesn't have the support that windows has.

Linux in the sense you mean will never become a highly polished piece of OSS simply because there is no single entity to do so. There's half a million different related projects involved

I'm hoping that SteamOS is highly polished and well maintained so that it's a good alternative to windows. I thought the goal of Ubuntu was to bring it to the masses by making it more accessible but last time I tried it, it seemed more trouble than it was worth, though 90% of my trouble was getting the graphics card to work properly.
