Hardware, Embedded Systems AlienWare (so Dell) has just unveiled a gaming PC running Ubuntu and Steam, designed to be hooked up to a TV - essentially a Steambox. "With over 25 gaming titles available and more being added, users can access Steam For Linux to play online games, including your favorite titles like Team Fortress 2 and Serious Sam 3." Everything starts out small, but with Valve going full throttle with this, expect this library to grow.

I have a feeling this is the first wave of things to come. I am waiting for my dell developer xps laptop to arrive:

even available in the Netherlands Thom ;)

Now this, I wasn't actually expecting Dell to be jumping in feet first like this, a gaming rig seriously ?. This is pretty awesome I have to say.

Dell seems to understand most of us using Linux actually want good hardware and are not after budget systems.

Once the steambox is officially released, the proper AAA games will also be released for it. We know left 4 dead 2 is working on Linux, I wonder what else Valve have cooking.
