I dont know why people keep bitching about Valve and their "poor, incomplete, buggy games and that POS Steam". Isnt it easier to just not buy their games, not install Steam, and go play/do something else that doesnt make your life such a royal pain..?
Well sure. But you're kinda screwed when you find out it's buggy sh!t after you've already bought and installed the products.

I would agree, but some things are better left dead and forgotton. When your bug fixing capacity is limited to working around your other workarounds which were implemented to work around other workarounds in order to workaround major design issues, it's best just to scrap the damn thing. It gets tiresome when a workaround breaks another workaround, till the latest is broken again in order to fix the old one.

OK, so the soldiers standing around with their arms out WAS a bug. I was kinda confused there.

Source.

Steam has had most of its bugs fixed lately due to a period where the developers allowed you to converse with them directly rather than going through the red tape in that shoddy piss poor support system. There only remains one shortcoming that I want them to fix in steam, but I think they never will since it goes against their design philosophy.

You mean you thought that bug was a feature?

What shortcoming? Being a complete resource hog?

Mainly, it doesn't have any kind of auto-terminate feature; e.g. automatically close steam when you quit your game. It is a pretty big annoyance to me to have to close a program with its tray icon when you aren't even using it.

FWIW, if it did that I wouldn't really care about the resource hogging as it wouldn't be yet another "lingering" program.

Youre wrong, they know most people are tired of HL2 and since they are not really that much cool mods out there they wanna get this out sooner or later but it suprised me we wont see it this year dah.
