Third Party Developers Released Ye Olde SteamOSe, A SteamOS Respin For Old And Virtualized Computers

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Valve’s SteamOS 1.0 Beta does not work on every computer, requiring UEFI support, Intel or AMD 64-bit processor, 4GB or more memory, 500GB or larger disk and NVIDIA, AMD or Intel GPUs. For more information about SteamOS, see this article.

Recently, a team of third party developers have initiated the Ye Olde SteamOSe project, an unofficial SteamOS respin, developed for computers with lower resources that the original SteamOS requires.

Ye Olde SteamOSe works with UEFI or Legacy BIOS, can be installed via DVD or an 1 GB USB stick and has dual boot support on non-LVM non-RAID systems. Also, it is optimized to work inside virtual machines (since it has 3D acceleration) and comes with drivers for new wireless modules and Realtek drivers already included.

For installation intructions and download links see the project’s website and the  above 30 minute presentation video:
