>Unlucky my machine is old and has trouble to run 3d games anymore, but is a worth check when I get a new one (I hope soon).
I was thinking more of that Wander apparently also is a PS4 game, which gives you two reasons to buy a PS4. Or in more negative counting methods, if that's your thing, all the reasons you'd have to buy a PS4 can be counted on two fingers.
>Is some time I didn't read about the Steambox, but the last time I read that the price was high in comparison of a common PC or a laptop.
The PC producer companies generally didn't get the memo that consoles are meant to cost less than €1,000. Alienware has a high-potential small PC starting at €530 for the Core i3 500GB model, which apparently has a special-tailored Nvidia APU made for the occasion, but every other scheduled Steam Machine are only really full PCs with fewer connection ports.
>Probably SteamOS is the most decisive step I saw that brought Linux in the gaming market, althought still has only a little share.
Steam has insisted on keeping SteamOS in beta for two years, seemingly in a desperate attempt to buy time to achieve Spotify and Netflix supports. There are only a handful of things where people feel safe with betas (I've partaken in betas of Internet Explorer and Deezer, though), and entire OSs are seldom on that list unless its a Windows late beta without account requirements.
>I'm not sure if Valve really believes in the hardware side of the project (expect for its controller), becouse is clear that the hardware isn't the stronghest point of this stuff.
Although somewhat addressed further above, the only possible explanation is that Valve asked PC builders to make PCs with PC OS support. A possible burning desire to not partake in the console wars and instead playing the slooow ride ♪. Initial gamer hopes of the salvation of living room gaming, has instead become perceived as Valve looking a decade or two ahead in time to ensure the survival of OSs without single-vendor binding like what Windows 8 wa—
Wait a minute... wait a minute! SteamOS is, in its core functions and the OS' stated aim, a single-vendor PC OS environment! While GOG Galaxy and Desura could probably be downloaded and handled decently, they'd be at a big disadvantage compared to Steam. Unless I've been missing some old explanations from Valve, Valve has themselves become what they've feared the most! I hereby declare that a gamer would have to be out of his wits or have invested €1,000+ in Steam games already if he would ever desire a SteamOS PC. I hereby recommend all PC gamers to get Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Linux Mint or Cubuntu (Not Windows 7. It's getting much too old). SteamOS will make your living room soul bound to Steam, with few ways out.
>The best thing to do is taking the best of the two worlds: dual-booting. A partition/HD for Linux and one for Windows.
Uhh... if recent Windows developments hasn't reached your ears yet: the modern UEFI-BIOS motherboards makes it inconvenient, at best, to attempt to install a Linux OS, especially for dual-booting. I do know that Windows 8.1 offers the alleged function of re-adding the OS boot list, of the same kind of list as in the classic BIOS. I need to test that function out before I can support or deny it whole-heartedly either way. But UEFI is infamous for 1) adding Windows Secure Boot, which halves the Windows 8 startup times but does not show most BIOS functions (you can enter BIOS, but the usual systematic text writing does not show up), which includes any OS or security boot lists; and 2) By having the list of the default boot OS be inside the UEFI BIOS, and by default not showing a list of multiple OSs you can choose to boot.
The horror effects of 1) and 2) has prevailed among Linux-interested people for some years, but I think I've got some BIOS things to test out still.
