1. Steambox is NOT a console and should NEVER EVER be referred to as a Console.

2. Steambox is a PC....a PC that will let you play Games minus Windows. Oh how Wonderful that sounds! :)

3. Steambox is upgradeable and will perform all other PC functions

4. Steambox is a way for the Non PC Savvy to get into PC Gaming in a ease of use way similar to Consoles.

5. Steambox also provides a way to play PC Games minus Microsoft........I so love that part!

6. Valve is awesome and should be worshiped for ridding us of evil.
