Does anyone else think Canonical might have asked for Valve to pay licensing fees in order to base SteamOS off Ubuntu, and that this is what led Valve to basing SteamOS off Debian? (look up the recent Linux Mint controversy for reference)
Nah, probably they weren't going to use Ubuntu in the first place. If you need milk, go straight to the cow... or something.
Translation: I'm so butthurt they didn't use Ubuntu!
i use arch man, i really don t care what is the core. i espect a OS for TV, not a normal linux distro like this with xorg and gnome, i don t see the point of using this, instant of ubuntu, fedora, mint or arch
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 ?
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.
