    Greetings!
    Steam is an acceptable form of DRM (Valve says it isnt DRM!? :hehe: ), but has lost its appeals as a store due to the € rip-off prices.

    Steam has an acceptable form of DRM, it is not intrusive, doesn't impede with the playing of the game and lets you install them on any computer you want.
    It isn't uncrackable, there are pirate Steam networks but the thing is, if you are willing to pay for the game in the first place pirating doesn't offer you anything extra like removing intrusive DRM.
