SteamOS "Brewmaster"

11 posts in this topic

It's been about a year, and I'm considering revisiting SteamOS to see if it's any good.


If anyone wants to know how many games are out now on SteamOS compared to Windows and macOS (formerly OS X), here's a bar graph:




Since last year, the percentage of games on Linux has dropped from 25% to a little over 23%, though there have been many new games. Although I will always consider having fewer games a "con" of SteamOS, know that this OS isn't intended to replace your desktop OS, anyway.


Rather, you should compare it to what experience you'd get with an Xbox One and PS4. You'll find you get:

  • More games (though once you get beyond 1000 games or so, it kind of stops mattering, anyway)
  • Free multiplayer
  • Graphics settings
  • Better, unlocked frame rates
  • Far more modding support for more games
  • Support for many different controllers
  • Stream games from your even more powerful gaming PC (if you have one)

This is where SteamOS can truly shine.
