I am too silly. I really don't get the details here, lol.
Nevermind, Ubuntu will live in the big shadow of SteamOS anyways and the glorious times of Canonical will end sooner or later.*

Why would the Tea Party be upset. They should understand that perhaps their current tactics are anti business and harmful to the economy. Unless they are really just a group of religious right culture war leftovers under a new banner.
It is a prediction? So, you can also tell me if it is going to rain tomorrow?For you i will make clear that its a prediction. The supporting fact is obvious so i will not explain it.
There are several arguable things in your assumption.
The first is that the SteamBox will actually be a HUGE success. AFAIK, it is just a well-thought desktop computer with SteamOS preinstalled. A gamer could as well buy it to avoid the work of planning the hardware he is going to use piece by piece, and then install Windows on it. There might be games that remain unsupported on Linux/SteamOS. As this setup will still require the gamer to have a decent Windows box running it, this would probably change this "at least I don't have to look for the hardware" plan, or keep it as "then I'll switch to Windows".
Aside of SteamBox, I don't think SteamOS will have huge adoption, as games will keep running on Windows, and games ported to SteamOS will (as far as we know) run on any Linux machine with the Steam Runtime, so Linux users aren't likely to migrate either, again, with the exception of buying a SteamBox.
And again, people who already migrated to Ubuntu, I'm inclined to think games weren't the deal maker nor the deal breaker for them, as Ubuntu gained almost decent support for games just recently. This means an OS which is mostly target to gaming will be "meh" for them.
