I've heard some people saying that any games you've purchased for Windows that also have linux support will run on Steam OS without having to re-buy it for Linux because steam only recognizes the titles you've [purchased and not the system you purchased it on. Any truth to this?

Yes, Steam already has been doing this for a long time now. You can do it right now if you wanted to.

Not only that, but some games have cross platform cloud saves. For example, on Linux, I can literally continue where I left off in Mark of the Ninja on Windows.

Valve will probably try to release more games that support Linux.

Valve releases plenty of games. They just don't release games with a 3 in the title.

Yes Its also nice if you buy steam keys from third party sites and it has mac keys cheaper or only mac keys. Since they are for all versions it doesn't matter at all.
