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.

Still, if I were going to build a box for gaming, Linux/Ubuntu would definitely NOT be my first choice.

Why? Its a reasonable machine that doesn't need a lot of horsepower. It will run just as fast 3 years from now as it does today. Not Windows malware or spyware. And Valve has pledged support for it for the future. You also can get a great warranty on a pre built linux workstation which is hard to come by and its got the hardware to do 3d intensive tasks.

Why? You can play Frozen Bubble and TuxRacer.
