In all seriousness, el swordo, you inadvertently answered the question: "Why will the steambox fail?"
I see no reason for anyone to compete with it.
I don't think Metro UI was for one singular OS, but rather one unifying UI. My Win8.1 Laptop tries to look like an Xbox, but it's far far from it. (Classic Shell fixed the lipstick on my pig)
But microsoft has something going for it that the steambox will never have. Halo, Gears of War etc. The reason I don't play pc games is because of games like those. The games that are ported to pc can be played on consoles I already have and then I'm free not to use windows
