Mod parent informative. Although GP is nothing more than the usual "Steam DRM hurr durr" troll.

What usually happens is that if you get VAC banned playing a game on a certain engine, you get VAC banned for all games using that engine. So for example, if you hack on CS 1.6 and get VAC banned, you would still be able to play on non-VAC servers as the parent rightly said, but you would be banned from playing on VAC-secured servers in CS 1.6 and all other GoldSrc multiplayer games. You would still be able to play on VAC-secured servers for games on the newer Source engine though (CSS, TF2, L4D etc)

The Galaxy S has been better supported in Europe. We've had 2.2 since October, and 2.2.1 since January.

Samsung has actually continually tried to release fixes for the GPS issue, but the more fixes they released the more they broke it. The 2.2 update fixed it for good.

And Kies runs on my Win7 64-bit computer fine thank you very much.
