Steam Box Software Beginning to Take Shape
The team at Linux enthusiast site Phoronix has discovered some software packages that can be found on the SteamPowered web-server in a repository, similar to those used by Debian based Linux distributions. This new repository contains some basic packages including an experimental NVIDIA Linux graphics driver and a new boot splash screen. Previously, only the Steam application and launcher were available on the public repository. This further enhances speculation that the Steam Box will be based on a version of the Ubuntu distribution, and I am even more excited at the prospect of not having to use Windows.
