Battle.Net's Steam

I pulled out Ye Olde Starcraft to install it on the netbook…but I have no CD drive. What to do? Well, like everybody else, Blizzard came out with their own Steam-like games download client. This is getting a bit annoying. I currently have Steam, Stardock, EA Downloader, and now Blizzard’s client. Anyway, you give them your CD key and they let you download a copy of the game that doesn’t require the CD. Huzzah! I guess you can’t blame Blizzard for doing this. I mean, they sell 99% of all PC games (WoW.) You think they’re gonna give a chunk of that change to Valve to put it on Steam? Nope.
