Half-Life's Steamy Future

A post on Planet Half-Life (thanks Frans) reproduces some quotes from Valve's Erik Johnson posted to a Steam forum thread discussing the role of Steam in the future of Half-Life. Here are the excerpts:

There will no longer be a WonID system, it will be replaced by the SteamID system.

When we convert the userbase to Steam, a single WonID will be valid for all of the products.

If you're purchased a product from us at retail, you're going to have access to all of our products via Steam.

No, you do not have to pay for Steam.

That is correct, you'll have to have Steam installed to play the most current version of Half-Life.

I can't understand all these people bitching about Steam.
Have they even tried it?!
Steam is so integrated with HL now they're practically one in the same for me. I love Steam so far, and only wish they came out with it 5 years ago. I never launch Valve games from my start menu anymore. Steam all theway for me.
I get the feeling that all the Steam haters are the same type of people that post "I hate M$" messages in web forums using IE and WinXP Pro.
