    Also, some total suckers might fall for a fake.
    People who are that green behind the ears shouldn't attempt to install an OS in the first place though...

    Nah, probably they weren't going to use Ubuntu in the first place. If you need milk, go straight to the cow... or something.

    nah, it's more like go straight to the producer instead of the store so that you circumvent the store tax. Going to the cow is pretty much the NIH thing

    I don't get why they recomend 500GB HDD on one hand and in another they demand 1TB to install SteamOS.

    Is it related to "mirroring" option that let us recover everything is something goes wrong with instalation ?

    In that case , i assume that if you try to install SteamOS is a 500GB HDD, it will be "split" in two of 250GB with 2nd 250GB used to mirror and recover the 1st 250GB ?

    TIA,

    The 1TB is because it is an installation from a system image, basically the system image for hardware in the Steam Machine Prototype, has Clonezilla cannot image a larger disk on a smaller one, at least last time I used it, even if plenty of free room. Has for the 500GB, games are kind of not the smallest software when it come to size, so you recommend a decent enough size to system builder.
