Many, Many people will be itching to download the new STEAM OS this week, but only a select few will be chosen to experience it. Valve announced earlier today (Wednesday) that the company will begin “shipping Steam Machines and Steam Controllers to the 300 selected beta participants,” this week and that the chosen will be notified today (at about 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time).
Valve stated, “SteamOS will be made available when the prototype hardware ships. It will be downloadable by individual users and commercial OEMs. (But unless you’re an intrepid Linux hacker already, we’re going to recommend that you wait until later in 2014 to try it out.)”
