SteamOS is a Linux-based operating system. The base system draws from Debian 8, code named Debian Jessie. Our work builds on top of the solid Debian core and optimizes it for a living room experience. Most of all, it is an open Linux platform that leaves you in full control. You can take charge of your system and install new software or content that you want.

vmware workstation player vm backup and export

in the latest version of vmware workstation player (14) you can no longer backup a vm or export a vm from the gui instead you need to run ovtool from the command line

C:\> "C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Player\OVFTool\ovftool.exe" -h

eg

C:\> ovftool.exe path-to-your-vmx path-to-your-ova-file-or-ovf-dir

you can specify target type instead of using file suffix ie OVA, OVF

C:\> ovftool.exe --targettype OVA path-to-your-vmx path-to-your-ova-file
