So does the steam OS play all the windows games or just the lines games?

A computer running SteamOS can only run Linux games.
However, if you have a computer running SteamOS and a Windows computer, the SteamOS computer will be able to run the games remotely on the Windows computer and stream the game to your SteamOS computer.
Of course your Windows computer will have to be able to run the game competently.

the same reason you might stream to an nvidia shield, to sit on your couch and play rather than at a desk and play.

wait is that all? I thought you could play every game on steam without the issues you get on windows.

Out of the box, a steam machine will have steamOS that will let you do two things: play Linux based steam games and stream games from another PC.

If you want to play Windows based games on a steam machine, you will have to install Windows on it.

So if I had windows on my computer and had the steam os it would be able to play both operating system games? If i also has mac os would it be able to play also?
