What are you talking about? Yes, I am referring to that GT.TV episode and in that episode he explains a bit that Valve develops “10 foot UI” for Steam and that hardware vendors (which in this context are Smart TV manufacturers or set-top box manufacturers) can choose between Windows and Linux for their platform.

That part of the interview was ABOUT HARDWARE VENDORS MAKING STEAMBOXES. By your logic we can see that obviously valve only made their windows client for the main purpose of letting hardware vendors make steamboxes with it.
