As teased last week, Valve has revealed SteamOS, the operating system that will power its upcoming living room initiative.

According to Valve's site, "SteamOS combines the rock-solid architecture of Linux with a gaming experience built for the big screen. It will be available soon as a free stand-alone operating system for living room machines."

"We've come to the conclusion that the environment best suited to delivering value to customers is an operating system built around Steam itself," the site continues.

SteamOS will tie in with Steam, and "you don't have to give up your favorite games, your online friends, and all the Steam features you love just to play on the big screen. SteamOS, running on any living room machine, will provide access to the best games and user-generated content available."
