Why SteamOS is Good for Gaming

Last week Valve announced that they’re creating a brand new operating system, based off Linux, known as the SteamOS. Ever since there’s been a lot of confusion online as to exactly what SteamOS is for, what’s different about it and more importantly why it’s good. I’ve got you covered though, here’s a handy list of why it’s good for gaming. (PC, Steam, Valve)

Because it will be an OS built for gaming its quite simple.

I think it is good for PC gaming. PC gamers will enjoy this a lot, and there will be console gamers that will have it easier to play on PC too.

Why would it be bad?

Hopefully it will be nice in a way that it will devote all resources to the game that is at hand, and the essential programs to run the OS/PC. Hopefully using the SteamOS you'll gain a few FPS from your games compared to windows or at least smooth out the FPS.

That's what Valve is stating. I think it might be more than just a few extra frames. It has the potential to be a more dramatic improvement than that.
