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.

That is the point. Standard-PC with Linux-typical support for a wide range of hardware. Download the ISO and turn your existing PC into a dual-boot steam-machine. You don't need to wait for manufactors, buy new hardware, its all there already. Except for the controller where, according to Valve, good old keyboard and mouse are still first class input-devices. Test-time is soon.
