Official launch of Software titles on September 5

Valve is a major video game company and has very impressive titles to its name, including Half Life. Valve also has a popular digital distribution platform called Steam that has been used to distribute digital versions of retail video games.
 
Valve has now announced that the first set of non-gaming software titles are heading to Steam. Software titles would be things other than video games. According to Valve, the software titles that will be landing on Steam will range from creativity to productivity.
 
"The 40 million gamers frequenting Steam are interested in more than playing games," said Mark Richardson at Valve. "They have told us they would like to have more of their software on Steam, so this expansion is in response to those customer requests."
 
The new software will be able to use some interesting features Steamworks offers such as easy installation, automatic updates, and the ability to save work to a Steam Cloud space so that files are available wherever you go. Steam will add more software titles as time goes by. The company also says developers can submit software titles via Steam Greenlight.
 
The official launch of software titles on Steam will be September 5.
 
Valve President Gabe Newell recently focused his wrath on Windows 8. Newell noted last month that Windows 8 would be a "catastrophe" for the PC space. He also predicted that some PC makers might leave the PC industry. Microsoft certainly made some of its biggest partners very uncomfortable when it entered the hardware business with the Surface tablets.

Pirks in your heart these things are true I'm sure. The problem is how you put them into words when talking to us. Now I'm not going to bother to go and get a bunch of quotes to make my point, I'm not here to attack you. Just know when you do things like attack others for "RIM trolling", for example, then don't put your money where your mouth is, it comes off hypocritical. When you attack others for being pro "Crapdroid", then buy a Galaxy Note, how do you think that makes you look?

I put my money where my mouth is 'cause I buy or at least try products and use them before declaring them shit. This is very different from your or Motoman's or cheesy clown's trolling of Apple, RIM or MS. If you knew squat about those various products I use and enjoy like Titan, Playbook, Windows 8 or Galaxy Note, you would troll and lie much less. And actually trying out some Apple stuff before trolling hard would also make you clowns look less stupid too. I am NOT posting lies about products or companies I haven't dealt with BUT YOU DO. See the difference now?
