No, my problem is with the stupid amount of people who treat Steam like the end all be all of PC gaming. That basically gives Valve control over the entire platform.

They already sell more indie games than any other reseller that I am aware of by far.
Gamersgate.

Before Steam, the concept of resellers selling indie games as far as I know didn't really even exist. Some of their competition have some indie games, but from what I have seen they don't have anywhere near as many as Steam and they don't do much at all to promote them whereas Steam does.
I'm not sure who jumped in with greater enthusiasm, Steam or GG, but either way the best thing to do is buy directly from the developer.
