I'm more than aware of Steam's status as glorified DRM, but for the moment it seems to be at least tolerable as far as DRM goes. I have not heard anything about it screwing with hardware or installed programs unlike other, more draconian schemes.

But I'm also aware that non-valve games can include 3rd party DRM as well, so that's why I'm slightly concerned and want to know before I jump in and finally buy something from steam. (I got the Orange Box at retail).
