EA Can Put Origin on SteamOS

Gabe Newell said on Reddit that if EA wants to put their Origin service on SteamOS for Steam Machines, they are more than welcome to do so. That's either being really committed to their promise to keep the OS open or a blatant announcement that they do not fear competition.

“What part is proprietary?” Newell asked on Reddit. “We’re trying to make it as open as possible. If EA wants to put Origin on [SteamOS or Steam Machines], that would be fine.”

This isn't to say that there is a SteamOS version of Origin out there, just that Valve won't stop EA from making one. This way, EA can still get their Origin-only games that they've pulled from Steam on Steam Machines. Of course, it's only if they want to.

Does EA even have any Linux-compatible games? Let's not forget Step 1, here...

Surely this will end up being perfect and not at all fucked up. I mean EA screams "quality" right?

I don't think this is going to happen, Gabe is just talkin hypothetically to demonstrate that Steam OS/ Steambox isn't going to be a closed environment.

Actually, it is incredibly slick on Gabe's part.

Either EA says "Yes", and Valve gets Origin (and EA games) back under their wing, or...

...EA says "No", and they seems like corporate douchebags, and Valve seems very generous for even offering.
