Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Expected, but still insanely cool: Canonical has just announced Ubuntu for phones. This is a new mobile phone operating system, with its own user interface and development platform. It's built around Qt5 and QML, and the interface reminds me of MeeGo on the N9. It's supposed to be on the shelves in early 2014, but the developer preview is out today.

The bigger issue would be recompiling top tier Steam games and apps to ARM. It was already a lot of work to port to GNU/Linux in the first place, and only a handful of unknown games have made the transition so far. An entire architecture would be a massive undertaking.

I'm not saying it's impossible, but I doubt it's on Valve's mind at the moment.
