Valve Announces Linux-Based SteamOS

RandomSkratch Re:If you notice... (510 comments)

The icons appear to be...

"O" - A gaming OS
"[O ]" - A box running the gaming OS?
"O + O" - A gaming network?

What I don't understand is the spacing in the icons. If SteamOS is O and the second icon (supposedly SteamBox) is [O ], why is there an extra space? Why wouldn't they have just chosen [O] or [ O ] ? Seems odd to me (or I'm just over thinking and they have a different design aesthetic).
