Hypothetical situation to make this clearer for anyone who doesn't understand the difference between the two.
Steam is your favourite music shop. You always buy from the same store and have great history, friends and get great prices, most better than any other shop. You're looking at this really nice MW2 guitar so you pick it up and ask the storeowner some about it, he says, "Well man the guitar has this one flaw with the pickups, otherwise it's a really fine piece of work". You give the guitar a whirl and enjoy playing it.
So you take the MW2 guitar over to the counter and pay for it, on the counter you see a flyer for another guitar, the BF3 guitar. Great looking guitar but it's not out yet. The storeowner mentions that he doesn't actually sell it, and you have to drive 30 miles out of town to buy it from the back of a manufacturing depot owned by the people who make the guitar this guitar has proprietory connections and can't be hooked up to any amp, and every time you want to play the guitar you have to drive 30 miles out of town where you have no contact with your friends, so you can play it on their amps.
A bit rough towards the end but you get the point. Steam got there first, it's too late for another DDL client.
