SteamOS will be made available when the prototype hardware ships. It will be downloadable by individual users and commercial OEMs. (But unless you're an intrepid Linux hacker already, we're going to recommend that you wait until later in 2014 to try it out.) We'll post info soon about that. Oh, and stay tuned for the in-home streaming beta to begin soon, too!

The first moment of truth for Valve.

I think everyone will be able to download the ISO, I think the 300 hardware beta testers will be US-only... which makes sense, there's a lot of hassle sending hardware overseas with any NDAs or what-not.

There are no NDAs, afaik the only limitation of accepting the hardware is that it is for you and you alone (ie, no ebaying). Unsure if that expires over time or for the life of the hardware.
