I am rather excited about the Steam Music announcement. As with many gamers once the in-game soundtrack has lost it’s appeal you lower the music and fire up the media player.
For me this strengthens the case for installing SteamOS as an entertainment centre, the more functionality that a Steam machine can provide the better.
The screenshot look as if you can create and manage playlists, which will be a key feature to allow you to plan songs for that fast paced racing game or to compliment the vistas of Skyrim as you explore.
Just waiting on that Netflix integration and I’ll be set.
