SteamOS Available December 13th

Anyone interested? I have a lot of respect for Steam, and appreciate their contributions to the gaming community. I sense a bit of skepticism around their latest endeavors including SteamOS, Steam Machines, and their new controller – but if anyone is going to eat this stuff up, it’s Steam’s community.

My question is, how many of these people already have their computer set up in their living room as their main device for consuming all digital media (films, games, etc)? I doubt they’d replace this set up with a Steam machine. Keyboards can be cumbersome on the couch, however, so I could see them getting the new controller if it is as precise as Steam says.
