    I'm just saying...
    Or, it makes it 10000x easier to manage and update your games.

    The stick being... what? Having to use the program to update the games? Woo? I already wanted to do that!

    It prevents us from doing what exactly? Concidering the sales at under $5 USD on Steam and the fact I can redownload my games whenever and wherever i like?

    I've never paid launch price for any game outside of a handful of sequels that I know are going to be great, like the Metal Gear Solid series.

    No use for this shit on my Ubuntu box. It goes way easier with just a repository and an apt:// url.

    The same system can be implemented on Mac and Windows with ease.

    I really don't know why the Ubuntu Software Centre itself isn't a webstore with local cache (webapp).
