    Wonder if the big steams sales will also include the major discounts/bundle packages for these software programs now as well?

    That would be epic!

    I there a way to switch off non-gaming software from being displayed? I'm just not interested 99% of the time, and the 1% that I am I'm quite happy to dig a little deeper to find what I'm looking for.

    The mix of games and utilities is just messy on the front page.

    I think if Steam are really going to start moving into 'proper' software, particularly productivity software such as IDEs then they need to change the terms of their service.

    As it stands, Steam can revoke access to an account and all of the software associated with that account, without even giving a reason [see: www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/02/01/thought-do-we-own-our-steam-games/]

    As a developer the thought of being suddenly cut off from the primary tools of my job without reason or recourse is horrifying.

    It's one thing being locked out from a £24.99 game, it's quite another if its vital software that you have paid hundreds of pounds for.

    Browsed them through, wasn't impressed.

    Hopefully the software section doesn't get too much in my face in the future.
