SteamOS is a Debian-based variant of Linux designed to optimize video games. When installed on standard PC hardware, this software provides a console-like experience. For the best experience, a Big Picture mode is recommended, and the features are further improved when tweaked at the kernel level. Steam-hosted games can run on this operating software, expanding the list of great gaming options. The right way to start optimization is through automated installation. There is only a minimal performance difference between Linux and Windows. Once you have built your network through your device, gaming becomes easier and faster. You may need to use PlayOnLinux/Wine to pay close attention to games that refuse to run.
