Looks like there's considerable confusion over this that needs to be cleared up as to the nuts and bolts of how it all exactly works.

Indeed, although I'm somewhat optimistic that at some point, they'll enable access so the owner can be logged in playing one game, and the borrower can be logged in playing another. Maybe some sort of check out/in system rather than access to the entire library.

The biggest boon from this for me is that I can set up a PC for my son which he can screw with to his hearts desire (staying away from my pristine unfucked games PC), and he can play my considerable library when I'm not online. Previously, I would have had to let him use my computer or buy a second copy. Certainly a step in the right direction for the enabling of users to share their content, particularly games they've already played and uninstalled.
