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

            That's the carrot. Now open your eyes and see the stick.

              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).

                      2) no

                      4)Then don't use Desura, the rest of us will be quite content for trading convenience for nothing.
