We already have Ubuntu variants which boot straight to an application (XMBCbuntu), and use the official repos for updates.
Chances are someone will mix up a Steamuntu, even if its not officially supported by Valve but gets all the official Ubuntu updates.

From what I can tell of the beta Linux Steam client, its responsible for its own updates rather than adding a new repository (like Google Chrome does) and relying on the user to keep their OS up to date.

For unauthenticated connections, this is true.

But for RADIUS authenticated services (most ADSL connections for example), the IP address can be included in the Access Accept response.

Your cable modem/router may be sending authentication details along with its MAC, and the remote side may use the MAC as a factor in assigning the IP address, but I am unfamiliar with cable technology so I can only speculate.
