as far as I could tell
the game never installed even though I tried to run the install of SC2, it wouldn't without steam and its huge almost 3 gig "patch" that took the majority of the weekend to download on the wireless broadband modem. It my companies and its unlimited, but 18 hours is unreal to install a game. and that was my point. Valves drm schema, is ok for some ppl who have dedicated internet but those that don't are left out in the cold. Same for cloud apps. When speed increases significantly and availability becomes second nature I think cloud computing would be mainstream in 5 to 10 or so years maybe. The game industry really drives innovation in many respects. on line game streamers like http://www.gaikai.com/ will live or die based on net availability and reliability. If it doesn't work people will walk away.
