Zeboyd's PC Sales Soar

Zeboyd Games announces that their recent release of Cthulhu Saves the World (and Breath of Death VII: The Beginning) via digital distribution for Windows has raked in more income through Steam than it had in over 18 months on Xbox LIVE: "We are pleased to announce that Zeboyd Games has already made more revenue in less than a week on Steam than we have in over a year and a half on the XBox Live Indie Games service. Thank you again to everyone who has made this huge success possible!" Thanks Joao and Nick via Rock, Paper, Shotgun.

I agree, but polishing steam and programming that stuff (and some other features mentioned in this thread) in isn't interesting to valve employees.

They just launched a major client revision with many improvements last year so this isn't true.
You talking Steam 2.0 or whatever they called it? I didn't think many of those changes were improvements. I made a number of posts at the time about things I didn't like. Such as the changes to the game list made it more annoying for me to use it. They totally screwed up the fonts with some weird default choices for directwrite, and I actually get LESS exposure to things I'm interested in purchasing and playing when they took the news off the front page, and recategorized everything so I can't get the news I want on a single view. Those are 3 of the biggest things, there's probably others I'm forgetting that are in my previous posts.

Regardless, adding search functionality to friends list by copying the code for searching games list should take them almost no time to implement and they haven't done it. They only JUST added ability to right click to copy a URL link in the main steam interface (such as when I want to send a link to a friend to tell him to check out a steam game), and you can't type a link in unless you are using the in-game browser interface (which may be a "feature" instead of a bug but it still annoys me).
There's a TON of similar features valve could do to polish up steam with only a small investment in time. They really just need some dedicated UI employees.
