SteamBox is a PC.

Now, would everyone please stop pretending that SteamBox is some radical new console that'll destroy the Wii U somehow?

No, 'Bigfoot' is a console. The Hardwares fixed.

It's designed to be a gaming console for the living room that uses Linux

You can load whatever OS ya want on it. Just that it uses fixed proprietary hardware.

Well, it's shipped with linux, and I doubt OSX, AmigaOS, BSD, or Haiku would have the hardware support for it. The only thing that we know that if for some god-awful reason you want to put windows on it, it will work.

If it comes with a free hat, a frogurt, a heavy plushie and a Gabe Newell plushie, and if it's priced well, the Wii U , 720 and PS4 are screwed. Oh, and if Half Life 3 is exclusive to the Steam Box, well.... yeah...

Exclusives are not in Valves plans. HL3 will be multiplat. Bigfoot is mainly for Steam & Steam workshop.

Steambox is not just a PC, please learn something before you try and talk about it.

Fixed hardware, sure, but it's very unlikely to be proprietary. Going that route would mean that the games they already have would likely not work properly.
