Steam does not cause unwanted start programs or viruses. A modern PC with a quad should not be slowed down by Steam. A slow dual might though, but only when you're playing a Steam game. Steam does not hurt performance when you're not using it.
Nah. I'll pass from personal experience with other people computers.
It ruins them
Steam is unnecessary. Why people use it idk. You can play games without it. Have a folder on your desktop with your games icons in it. Problem solved. So crapware running on startup or anything needed.
I'm sure there is a version of metro2033 that isn't in steam.
And everyone gets their steam accounts hacked. Thats pretty crappy. I can avoid it and just install games directly on my computer with no program needed to run it.
