    Linux gaming just got better. Here's a short, enthusastic review of SteamOS 2.0 Beta, a dedicated gaming 64-bit Linux operating system based on Debian, covering setup and early preparations, look & feel, main interface & store, downloads and gaming, Big Picture mode, and more. Enjoy.

    Not to sound like a jerk, but that was a very shallow review (the same as this comment ;))

    It was ... because there isn't too much to report really.
    Compared to version 1.0, little has changed.
    And there's a tutorial lined up, so ...

    Steam in SteamOS 2.0 Beta hangs? Solution.

    So hot, it's steamy. We have a problem, and we need to let off some steam. To wit, a tutorial explaining how to resolve the Steam hang problem in SteamOS 2.0 Beta when running in a virtual machine using VirtualBox and other virtualization products due to OpenGL errors, by removing custom Steam GCC and C++ runtime libraries, plus some other general troubleshooting tips and tricks.
