Why is Steam such a pile?

  • crappy skins that look nothing like a windows app for no apparent reason
  • crappy non-antialiased font (too small, too, I guess it ignores my global windows font size setting)
    [note, some people hate antialiased fonts. some people hate non-antialiased fonts. best to obey global windows settings]
  • doesn't queue downloads (if I set multiple games to install, it tries to download them all at once?)
  • doesn't show total download size, download size so far, or ETA, just % and rate, so impossible to estimate ETA

I would just buy physical boxes, but back when I bought the
physical box for HL2 I still had to activate over steam and that
inexplicably took something like 4-8 hours.
