What is the big hairy deal with you people and Steam? I've had Steam since day one...I've never ever ever had any problems with it ever...I load it and play. When I'm not playing it, I don't have it loaded. I played HL2 and CS:Source the day they came out. Every fricken time there is a Steam story on here people come out of the woodwork for what? Boycott it. Why? Um...because! They've yet to ever put a valid argument to it, so please, don't even try.
Give me a break.
