A Beta was released today. Seems to be based on Debian and include a Desktop mode so it can be used as a proper computer without much hassle.

note: this is just the desktop mode not the default Steam Big Picture mode.

Most interesting bit from their FAQ for me:
Q: Can I run Microsoft Windows games and applications on SteamOS?

No, SteamOS is based on Debian GNU/Linux and is not compatibile with Microsoft Windows games and applications. However, SteamOS will soon support seamlessly streaming your games from your Windows computer; watch this page for more information about the In-Home Streaming Beta.

At least for now, there is no way to dual-boot SteamOS or install it on a second hard drive.
I'd just like to interject here and point out that I'm not going to say anything to spoil the mood, Chief. I'll just float here and watch. Don't mind me, just sitting here, floating and watching, that's me.
