Playtron promises an alternative to SteamOS for handheld PCs: ‘Play all your games from every store, Steam, Epic and more’

Playtron hopes to become the Linux-based operating system for gaming across handhelds, laptops, TVs, and, uh, in cars. According to the company, the PlaytronOS will be an improvement over Valve’s own Linux-based gaming distro, SteamOS, because it won’t be locked to a single storefront: it will be “compatible with every game store and many 3rd party integrations to come.”

Playtron calls itself “a light weight gaming OS optimized for a new generation of powerful handheld gaming PCs.” The company’s website also calls out both Windows and SteamOS as being a poor fit for handheld gaming, and promises to be better.
