What I do not get is how anyone here at Blue's can see Steam as anything other than an annoying, but regretfully necessary network client on our computers.

I don't know man. I'm older now, I don't want to patch my own games anymore. I like just making a fast purchase and being able to play shortly after instead of trucking out to the store or waiting on UPS. I actually use the Friends/Community features and consider them a benefit. Back when I used to play WoW I made a ton of gamer friends and we all keep in touch and play various games through our Steam accounts. The recent improvements to the library features have made it a very competent game library manager too.

It's not perfect, there's a lot I'd like to improve. I want Steam to handle backing up my game saves and shit, not just Steam Cloud enabled games but everything. I'd like better workshop integration and so on. I don't look at it as a regretful annoyance though, I wouldn't use it if that was the case. When Steam was initially released it was largely a piece of shit and guess what, I barely ever used it as a result.
