Submission + - Alienware swaps SteamOS for Windows->

An anonymous reader writes: Valve left many OEMs hanging when they delayed Steam machines until sometime next year to work out their controller issues. Many of these companies excitedly showed off new Steam machine hardware that they cannot ship so Alienware has been the first to re-purpose its Debian-based Steam machine to be a Windows-based Steam machine bundled with an XBox controller. While Windows 8.x has not been particularly well-received it does support a lot more games than Linux and when configured to boot straight into Steam Big Picture mode the influence of the underlying OS is visible only in the larger game library.
