You get the option when it asks you to do the survey.
It's on an "opt-in" basis rather than "opt-out

Some leaked 360 gameplay, the low res looks like crap though.

Try not being able to load, install or properly uninstall steam and getting 0 helpful troubleshooting information from Valve on it.

Wow Sounds more like user error not program error. How can you blame Not being able to Install or any other issues from The end users end On the company.

Ive installed and removed steam from the last 20 PCs ive built, Not 1 issues, Including all games.

Steam is Still a God amung peasants.

Not really user error when the installer itself was causing the issues. I'm not going to get into it, but it was steam causing itself to crap up and not me, tread carefully.

It means dont get personal. Steam isnt perfect. Its the best we have right now...but thats not the same as saying its PERFECT and inferring someone who has run into probs must be a mental midget is not a good idea. ;)

Arinoth, I would guess it's some sort of registry entry that is hanging up the installer?
