But they said they are releasing the code, so other distros will be rolled with different default desktops. And the improvements will probably be rolled into other Ubuntu based Distros like Mint. As for Wine, we know Valve with nVidia is working on a directX wrapper for Linux so that game devs can use this wrapper to quickly port games. I expect Wine will become transparent, and programs and games on SteamOS won't be distinguishable between Wine and native. You just click Play and it launches. + 0 Votes A follow up question cchristolini October 11, 2013 at 6:34pm PST A follow up question to this is what do you think about the new wine improvements? http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTQ1Mjk + 0 Votes Steam OS. cchristolini October 11, 2013 at 6:20pm PST Like most things valve does we just have to wait. Often times the end result is worth it. My only hope is that steam OS is not ubuntu based as I would hate to see an entire ecosystem stuck on mir and/or unity based systems. Especially if the current dashboard in steam is any performance indicator.
