Gamer’s constantly rag on Origin for being a piece of crap and while it is worse than Steam, Steam is not exactly a
fantastic piece of software either.
Downloads seem to give very little indication of what they are doing. They seem to randomly stop or start on their own
and don’t work very well.
Steam is slow, starts slow, loads things slow and is just generally slow on pretty much every machine I use. From what
I can see, it’s really not even the software that’s slow to start, its the fact that there is almost never any indication
that something is happening.
There are also other things that I can’t quite place my finger on that make steam just feel clunkier and harder to use
than similar software.
