Didn't steam os only work with nvidia gpu's?

Edit: Nevermind they changed it. Install ubuntu way more fun to experiment

If you want to just mess around get it. But remember that steamOS is meant for vendors selling PC like consoles to provide controller friendly GUI for steam on the tv. Valve does  not prevent you from exiting steam and going to the desktop but it's stripped down so you will have to spend a lot of time installing additional packages to bring it upto the functionality of a desktop PC.

 

You could just get one of the Linux distros meant for desktop like solydk or Ubuntu. Steam will work on those and all the steamos games will work.
