I don't think that SteamOS will kill PC gaming, mainly because it's designed to run on a PC. Conversely, I think it will have an impact on Windows gaming, particularly in the living room. Valve are essentially helping us shave $100 of licencing costs off having a second gaming box.

Whether it works long-term or not depends on how well Valve supports the ecosystem. But, as both publisher and developer, they're uniquely placed to identify and resolve those pain-points.

Either way, if I was Microsoft, I'd be looking at the development with keen interest.
