The Verge got a chance to sit down with Gabe Newell at CES this week and finally shed some light on the much talked about Steam Box. On top of partnering with multiple companies to create Steam optimized PCs, Valve themselves are working on an official Steam Box.
Valve will be selling their Steam Boxes directly to consumers and it will run Linux as we've been hearing. Gabe goes on to describe that you'll be able to install Windows too, stressing that their system won't be "some locked box by any stretch of the imagination."
Gabe goes on to talk about what they're trying to do with their version of a controller, how the Steam Box will act as a server so you can just use one computer to play games on multiple screens with others, and loads more insightful stuff. Pretty damn good read on where Valve is trying to take the future of PC gaming.
