Steam itself had some problems too so I don't see the big deal.
I've never known steam to go down an entire weekend (probably from ubi not bothering to make any special trips on their days off to fix them), or even a multiple day outage. And in the very rare cases when all of steam does go down, in general offline still works. With ubisoft always on DRM, you are just screwed.

On the other hand, this is the second time in a few months that ubisoft DRM has been down for an extended period (that I know of anyway, since it was posted on blues, I got annoyed with uplay always on DRM in settlers since it liked to stop me from playing my game and stopped playing it. So if they've had other outages I haven't taken note). The first time was announced because of a server migration, that was supposed to make things better. Obviously it didn't, since it happened again.
