Valve’s Steam Deck developer kits have been out in the wild for less than a day. Yet, according to a tweet by SteamDB’s creator, Pavel Djundik, the portable rig’s operating system has already leaked. Better still, enthusiasts have apparently managed to get it running on other handheld gaming PCs.
In case you’re unaware, Valve’s upcoming handheld will come equipped with SteamOS 3.0, a new version of the company’s Linux-based platform. While SteamOS shares similarities with the Windows desktop app, the former was originally designed to be a proprietary platform. Put it this way; if you remember the phrase ‘Steam Machines’, you’ll remember what Valve was originally aiming for.
As a prelude to claims about the Steam Deck’s software leak, Djundik also shared screenshots of the handheld’s operating system while stating that the storefront part of the software is currently inaccessible. Of course, the programmer is quick to note that these images are nothing new, as Valve’s previous press releases haven’t been shy about the device’s UI.
