See I don't see Steam as a form of DRM because I get a service from it. I use it as my regular chat client now. I even use the browser within the program while I play.

If Ubisoft created more of a service from their DRM rather then just a log on into their servers it would have been taken better by the public. Yes it backs up your saves but they designed that for DRM purposes.

Yup, I hate having game boxes taken up space and when I trash them I have to keep the manual around or the cd sleeve with the key. God forbit I were to misplace it making my game useless then.
