Do the commands on this page work? https://wiki.debian.org/Steam

I have never had the opportunity to use DCORE before.

I don't know how much difference is between TCL.

my goal is to use steam on a light linux! :)

This makes no sense. Steam itself is huge, requires a ton of deps, and the games are hundreds of gigabytes.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

the difference between heavy or light;
Evaluation of the subject in terms of RAM resource consumption

or even the lightest operating system in the world
as much as google archives at internet access point
can access big data via internet.

Here, it is desired to reach the highest efficiency with limited RAM resource.

Xor - you really don't understand TC nor dCore.  Do you know what an "SCE" even is?  Maybe you should practice first to find out.

Actually - no.  What you don't understand is that by the time you get all the supporting architecture installed to do Steam, or any number of your other resource-intensive projects, TC and dCore are no longer "light" in ram requirements, and hardly make a difference at that point.

But don't let that stop you.  Instead of asking us to be unpaid volunteers for making YOUR distro, how about trying it yourself first?

Or here's a thought:  answer the questions devs ask, or put into place the suggestions they propose, instead of merely repeating your question in a different manner hoping for a different outcome?

It truly is a time-saver.

In terms of TCL resource consumption, there is a RAM consumption corresponding to Xp.

rough accounts;
TCL or XP operating system = consuming 250 MB of RAM.
steam = Consumes 750MB of RAM. ( https://steamcommunity.com/groups/SteamClientBeta/discussions/3/1627412171707920566/ )
* In a 4GB ram system, 3GB of free space can still be left.

however, W10 will not have any free space. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_10#System_requirements )

Well, dCore won't make a good starting point for you, since it uses more ram than TC by default - different objectives.

for reasons I mentioned earlier in the link
A game running SteamOS; I played 2 times faster on TCL. :)
