Non-Gaming Apps on Steam

The Software on Steam Store is now open, a bit later than expected (right on Valve Time), allowing customers the chance to buy non-gaming applications through Valve's digital distribution service. At launch they offer six titles (and the previously released free Source Filmmaker), noting that many take advantage of Steamworks features such as easy automatic updating and saving to the Steam Cloud, giving the example that GameMaker Studio features integration with Steam Workshop to allow users to share their work via Steam. For the first week all of these applications are on sale for 10% off: 3D-Coat, 3DMark 11, 3DMark Vantage, ArtRage Studio Pro, CameraBag 2, and GameMaker: Studio.

I wonder if Valve will ever sell more than that one Indie Game movie on Steam.
I'm fine with buying games with Steam DRM, but I don't like DRM for video/audio/text, as it limits which devices I can use.

What did they do for Indie Game? I never bought it...did it check for a license or something (on playback)?

I can understand wanting to protect a 2 hour movie more than a mp3 soundtrack, but I agree - if I was buying media from them, I'd want to do whatever I wanted to do, short of uploading it for the rest of the internet to have.
