Unless Steam do something monumentally stupid to alienate customers, I can't see it happening. MS has demonstrated numerous times that they have little love for, or understanding of the needs of, PC gamers.

I'm torn on this - I don't like monopolies, and yet Steam has been generally pretty unintrusive in terms of ease of access, downloads games quickly and offers ludicrously cheap prices during their sales. At present I have about 70% of my DD games on Steam, 25% on GoG and 5% on Gamersgate, mostly due to those sales. Obviously if a game is available on both GoG and Steam, GoG wins, but by definition this only applies to the older games.
