Absolutely, it runs SteamOS, Valve's Linux-based operating system, but you can install Windows if you really want to.

Yep, the Steam Deck runs SteamOS, which is based on Linux. You can even install other Linux distros if you're feeling adventurous!

Technically it's Linux, but more precisely, it's SteamOS 3.0, a Linux-based operating system. You won't be stuck with it, though, as Windows can be installed too!
