It has already been proven that Steam OS does not need you to have a Steam account to use it - its Debian afterall. You can just use .deb installers or tarballs so no issues there.

Except that in all likelihood the customer will be forced to have a Steam account to use SteamOS, which I doubt GOG will want to force on its customer base just to have Linux support. This would also be free advertising for GOG's biggest competitor. Terrible idea in my opinion.

I understand that this would only be done when there is a big enough market.
But if that happens, it could be a great basis for Linux support on gog.com.
The existence and market share of SteamOS will push for more reliable gaming support in game development, drivers and software like Wine.
gog.com
could make a SteamOS client to get compatible games available on SteamOS.

Yes! This must happen!

Apparently, GoG haven't added Linux support in the past because it's too fragmented a platform(There are well over a hundred different distributions of Linux, all of which are different in their own way), but SteamOS would be perfect for this. :)
