SolusOS link fixed

Sorry about that broke link folks. Seems ostatic.com moved to Amazon hosting and my story was posted after they did their data dump for the move. My fault for working such weird hours. Tongue

Anywho, for those interested in SolusOS and didn't get the news elsewhere the article is reposted.

Oh, and btw, Gnuman has lots of screenshots!

    Steam Machines? More like has-been machines, am I right? Actually, no: while many people are giving Valve's PC-console-hybrids the cold shoulder, this gamer reckons they'll be worth the wait. I realise that I'm part of a shrinking group still backing Valve's SteamOS-powered Linux boxes, and it's not difficult to see why the hype around them has all but evaporated. Several controller-related delays, U-turns by seemingly committed hardware partners and a lack of news from the top has made many think that Valve is blowing hot air.
