What is up with steam? People on my university’s network keep saying how much they hate it, but I have no idea what it is. Help?

Steam is Valve’s distribution and multiplayer connection system. there’s alot of news on it. check http://www.bluesnews.com/ for best info. too much to post here. and there might be news this morning i’ve not read.

Steam is an important development. similar to iTunes. it’s worth reading up on and understanding full story. don’t listen to the whiners. most dont know whats up. if Valve can make it work, i’ll be very happy.

I’ve been waiting for a new fps forever. I’ve been playing Soldier of Fortune Double Helix for over 2 years now. I love it for the multiplayer games. Too many games are very pretty but not enough feel. My PC Gamer subscription ran out about 4 months ago. HL2 has great reveiws wherever I look.
