But yeah... cool... I can't hardly wait to find out how many of us didn't get picked (will it be all of us? Probably!)

"(But unless you’re an intrepid Linux hacker already, we’re going to recommend that you wait until later in 2014 to try [SteamOS] out.)"

If that's coming from Valve then I have my doubts SteamOS is even going to be functional yet.

Valve's just assuming that the average person isn't familiar with Linux OS's. If the OS is functional enough to be put on the beta machines, and sent to average consumers to test, then it's functional enough to use on a PC.

Yeah that would make sense. I might be misinterpreting what they're saying there.

Just after seeing them consider Steam to be done enough to force onto people, I have my doubts SteamOS is going to have a very smooth release.

I just want the Streaming beta to start so I can opt-in to be chosen, and then never get picked.
