If it wasn't for Steam, I could have never played Half-Life and thus Counter-Strike up to Source again due to the disk getting lost.
So why are we against DRM again? Oh wait... I know... because of government intervention with the web. Because of DRM's e-mail that the person who send it could nuke it if he/she wanted it. Because we could not decide what happens with our OS. Because it would... *evil evil evil*
These are just games. They cost about nothing. Valve has a track record of supporting games for as long as they exist. They said: When Steam goes offline... we'll upload already made patches... etc... etc... etc....

Oh wait... that's right I recall... how many FLOSS games are succesfull on the premier PC gaming platform? Warsow... OK... and? Well? None!
