[Q] Would it be possible to port the essentials of the Steam OS to Android.

First of Im not a dev just self taught myself alot "basic things" And im Probably going to us the wrong Jargon and what have you so be warned

I wanted to Get this Conversation going and see if there is a way to Port all the necessary things ( runtimes, frameworks and API's) From the To android

Im looking to see if its possible and maybe getting some Dev's discussing It.

Im not expecting this to be developed just that the possibility if their is any be explored

Im also not talking about 100% compatibility (for either the games available or phones) as either of those options are ridiculous (the latter is more so IMO )

Some Q: Is SteamOS open source?
All of the base operating system components are open source. The Steam client itself is proprietary, as are some proprietary third party drivers.
