This is what I see in the SteamOS site, the bits about “openness”. There is nothing to suggest it is impossible.SteamOS website:
With SteamOS, “openness” means that the hardware industry can iterate in the living room at a much faster pace than they’ve been able to...
...Users can alter or replace any part of the software or hardware they want...
...SteamOS will be available soon as a free download for users and as a freely licensable operating system for manufacturers. Stay tuned in the coming days for more information.

There is nothing to be gained by the effort. The performance improvements are in the open source graphics drivers from Intel (OpenGL has not changed). The game selection on Steam is for x86.Oakham wrote:who is going to volunteer to compile Steam OS for the Pi rather than blowing hot air ??
Things are looking more and more like it is... possible.Steam Machines site:
Can I download the OS to try it out?
You will be able to download it (including the source code, if you're into that) but not yet.
Can you explain that? How is a Hardware Decoder supposed to introduce notable latency?OtherCrashOverride wrote: When/if the streaming client source code is released, it may be possible to port that. But the latency introduced by the Pi h264 decoder would probably make it unsuitable for real-time games (shooters).
