The novice realizes that the difference between code and data is trivial. The expert realizes that all code is data. And the true master realizes that all data is code.

Valve is trying to enter the console market without really having a console. It sounds like they're planning to have a variety of "consoles" called Steam Machines that come with Steam OS installed. If you want to, you can also just install Steam OS on a PC. It's just a fork of Debian.

It seems like Valve might be doing for consoles what Android did for phones.
