@Mattimeo Use the discussion forum, i´m sure that´s the best way to get help.

I wish I was done. But I'm not. Steam very often upon startup will be stuck on the "Connecting to Steam...account..." It will stay like that until I kill all Steam processes and try again. At times it takes a few tries.

Also the voice chat was bugged when I tried to use it with a friend. It would not connect both of us. Very poor experience with Steam these days.

Also my msg was just double posted because of: Sorry, some kind of error has occurred: There was a problem posting your comment. Please try again.

One step forward, two steps back.

Friends & Chat button(on bottom right of Steam client) does not open friends window. Must alt tab or manually open from taskbar. Also I still hate it.
