News: Steam OS Takes Over The Living Room

After expressing a desire to enter the console market, Valve introduced the first part of its plan: SteamOS.  The free Linux based operating system will allow gamers to access their Steam library in their living room effectively building upon the Big Picture Mode concept already available in the current version of Steam.  Players will be able to use their existing PC to stream games using their home network.  In addition to games, players will also be able to access music and video content as well as take advantage of the new family featurues.  Family sharing is coming to Steam and will allow players to share their games with others.  Games can be played by one individual at a time, however each player will be able to save their own progress and acquire their own achievements.  No release date has been provided.
