New Counter-Strike

Valve has released Counter-Strike version 1.6 via the new version (story) of the Steam content delivery system. Here's the deal: "In addition to the Steam Client and Dedicated Server files released earlier this week, Valve today issued the CS 1.6 Steam Installer, which is also free of charge to existing Half-Life and Counter-Strike players. Since the release of the full version of Steam, Valve's broadband platform for the delivery and management of digital content, over 200,000 new accounts have been created." The full 379 MB Steam install along with the Counter-Strike/Half-Life update is mirrored on 3D Gamers, Counter-Strike 1.6, FilePlanet (registration required), Gamer's Hell, Games Fusion, The Patches Scrolls, and Worthplaying.

Soooooo... what are my options if I want to continue playing CS? Search for 1.5 servers and quit playing at my favorite IP's 'cause they switched to 1.6? Waste my time and HD space to DL Steam and come right back here to post complaints 'cause it doesn't work? Or Follow Fourpak's advice and write a letter/make a complaint but still have to do one of the above? HL and CS have been my favorite games for a long time and it looks like that might not last much longer. I hope Valve and those responsible pay attention to who really matters, the long-time and faithful gamers, and do the right thing.
