SteamOS

Is there a open source RPi adaptation of SteamOS.
Also, does the controller broadcast over Bluetooth?

SteamOS is compiled for x86-64 CPU https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SteamOS

Is there a open source version I can port to a RPI 2 B+ or modify Raspbian to look like it.

What functionality in SteamOS are you after ?
Playing any games directly on RPi is out of the question since SteamOS games are written for Intel CPUs.
If you want to stream games on the other hand you can try out MoonLight if your PC has a NVIDIA card.

I can access and log into the Steam store, the forum, video game trailers, etc, via a normal web browser on a Pi2B, or is this not what you mean?

The OP asked for SteamOS Debian x86-64 based Operating System, unfortunately the GUI is proprietary and an Open Source version is not available, and even if it was it would need a total recompile for ARMHF...

If you got Valve to let loose of the source or binaries for the steam link you would have a better chance. Since it runs on an arm processor.

Actually I was pointing out all the other things that are required, such as 4GB RAM and high end graphics cards (the fact that it is x86 wouldn't really matter if it could be cross-compiled) :roll:

You'd be better off using Moonlight Embedded on the Pi and a second PC with a relatively high-end Nvidia graphics card. That way you can access all the features of Steam that you want, and you should even be able to play games. Or get a Steam Link.

SteamOS and Steam will not work on a Pi. Not unless Valve themselves release a version for Pi; given that they can't even release the final part of the Half Life series after a 9 year wait, that's extremely unlikely.
