WTF would I ask for hardware guys to work on software? We have bloatware that's basically been unchanged since it's inception. It's still a buggy, broken mess and they have over 65 million accounts.

This is factually incorrect, Steam has gone through several revisions with dozens of new features added. There are aspects of it I think need improvement and Steam development is all over the place, sometimes quickly iterative and other times maddeningly slow. To say it's "bloatware thats basically unchanged since its inception" is completely absurd and untrue though.

They've got 40 guys out of 310 working on SteamOS/SteamBox, I don't see any problem with resource allocation and the desktop client will likely receive functionality upgrades as a result.
