Alas, the realtor strong-armed the builders. They ALL have those 'features', so it's that or live in the gutter.

Really ? Because I could have sworn there's these two other builders in town...

One of those builders doesn't allow you to walk in your front lawn, period. You get arrested if you do that. The other one is in the process of being strong-armed, and will probably end up costing twice the price of the houses with those 'features'.

Major differences between it and steam: 1) Major emphasis on independently produced games 2) Linux support 3) Inbuilt mod support It is made by the same people who run indiedb.com and moddb.com. It allows the creators of mods to quickly and easily reach people, it allows developers of games that have a linux version to easily and simply target every distro (rather than just Ubuntu with the Ubuntu Software Center, for example) and it gives independent developers a quick and easy way of getting their games on a major platform. The disadvantage, compared to steam, is they have a comparatively tiny selection of AAA titles.
