'SteamOS 1.0 was made available for download today through Valve-owned
steampowered.com. In the SteamOS FAQ, we discover that SteamOS 1.0 is
based on Debian 7.1 stable. Some of the changes for Steam include
backporting eglibc 2.17 from Debian testing, updating the kernel to
3.10.11, and auto-updates from the Valve SteamOS repos. Valve chose
Debian because they felt it "is the best way for Valve to deliver a
fully custom SteamOS experience" to its customers.'
