So SteamOS will be able to play all current games?

I think Metro LL was confirmed before Valve officially announced SteamOS


but yeah, hopefully all games supports linux.
not even a linux supporter/windows hater, i would just like to know my games works on whatever the hell i put on it. heck, get some ChromeOS support (for low-end games of course) for the hell of it

By streaming from a Windows PC elsewhere in the home, theoretically.

Also, since Valve is going to be supporting Linux and promoting a version of it, it should get some more attention from developers. Sure, it might not turn into a huge thing right after release, but something like this has to have an effect on at least some developers. Therefore, more games in the future might see Linux versions. Also, Wine might be improved.

The goal is to not have to use Wine.

There's a rumor that some big gaming companies will be announcing Linux ports at CES 2014 (basically any game that utilize the Unreal, CryEngine and id Tech engines; all of these engines have been announced in previous articles that a Linux port was being worked on). The biggest one, from what I've heard, is CD Projekt RED announcing all of the Witcher games (including Wild Hunt) to be released on Linux.

This doesn't prove anything other than Gaben is buthurt over Windows 8 taking a cut of Steam sales. I remember a Linux copy of Quake 1 sitting on the shelves of my Gamestop for many years then got tossed away because nobody gave a damn.
