I guess I've been hiding my head in the sand when it comes to EA Origin. I can honestly say I didn't know it existed until this topic caused me to go read about it. How big is it compared to Steam?

It's a very basic EADM reskin, it has rudimentary community friends list, a barebones HTML storefront and product key registration. That's about all there is to Origin at the moment. It's not "bad" per se, it's just very lackluster and there is no reason to use it over anything else(XFire, Steam, etc). EA could have done a whole lot more with it, they claim to be developing it over time but EA tends to go at things like a bull in a rut then forget about them a year later so I can't say my confidence level in Origin is high. That's without getting into EAs history of shenanigans when it comes to dealing with their customers.
