They'd only need to have a downloadable .desktop file (from the steam website) if Ice was preinstalled.

Yes, indeed.  Valve could even add it to the store as something you can download and use.  It wouldn't be hard at all, I'm sure.

it'd be ridiculously simple.

Oh, and branding and graphics dirvers aside (and maybe a few scripts), I can't see how SteamOS *can* be proprietary (?) .. they're using other peoples GPL'd code for 99.9% of it.

Yeah, sorry, I didn't mean SteamOS is proprietary, I meant the Steam application itself is proprietary.  Hell, SteamOS is basically Debian.

I have been through rumours (or perhaps reality) that Valve is in talk with Netflix and other companies to include their services on Steam by default. :) There may be certain Steam clones in the future. or perhaps an open source version of steam os (like chromium OS and it's clone chromixium) ;)

Scifidude79, you can get a long (very long) HDMI cable and hook up your TV with your computer in some other room :) That will work too, wouldn't it? ;)

I wouldn't require a terribly long one.  Nine feet would easily do the trick.  Besides, I've read you can have signal degradation with a really long one.  However, until I update my graphics card, I don't even have an HDMI port on my computer.  I may look at some Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales next month to see what looks good in the video card department.  :)

9 feet ain't too long. even the one that came with our set top box of the TV is around 5 feet long (it has been folded into rings) and doesn't seem to affect the quality and smoothness of the video :)

You really didn't need to say it 4 times.  :P

I've read that the ones longer than 10 feet (I think) are where you start having signal degradation, though I don't know how bad it is.

I could have known that I posted duplicates but after posting a reply, the forum directs me to the topic index page so I couldn't know. Opera browser is crap. I downloaded Opera on Peppermint and it has failed to open even a single page (with turbo enabled).

Opera hasn't been good since they completely rebuilt it, in my opinion.

Did they ever fix their sync system or is it still borked?
