New Steam Client

The promised new version 1.0 of the Steam client has been released. The non-beta version of the broadband content delivery/DRM system can be downloaded from 3D Downloads, 3D Gamers, Boomtown (registration required), Computer Games Online, FileRush (Bit Torrent), Gamer's Hell, Games Fusion,, Loadedinc (registration required), and Worthplaying. While fears have been expressed that Valve is tracking Kazaa shenanigans and such with SpyWare (thanks Cletus), the last post on this forum thread (thanks Frans) clarifies that this is an unanticipated glitch on FAT32 hard drives from software that was only tested on NTFS systems, and no SpyWare is involved (so your Justin and Kelly obsession will remain your secret).

74. Steam Sucks Sep 13, 2003, 14:34 Tigger
D/L'ed Steam - as an IT project manager, I try to be a good user and support VALVes initiatives.

Took 2 hours to update my CS. Yeah, that sucked. Although there was a good program on NASA Channel that featured Astronaut Tom Stafford.

In CS - finally - went to bring up the Options menu, nothing happened for 5 minutes (I actually timed it). CS 'not responding' - mad traffic on my router.

Restarted - looked for support. "Steam forums will be back up shortly."

Posted this message on Blues.

Uninstalled Steam.

Glad this isn't my project.
