Bizarre is putting [insert non gaming application name - not just gpuz] on Steam just so it can be updated.Just a general observation for everyone: I can understand @W1zzard not wanting to do this without a clear payoff somewhere, because of the extra maintenance overhead etc, but I can't understand why users wouldn't want more free options and are so vociferous against it. Remember, my proposal was to have it in addition to what we have now, not replace it. It's like turkeys voting for Christmas. Bizarre.
Again, the idea of an auto update is good. I wish a checkbox was possible... even with UAC. The idea of Steam having it to do so... not a good idea (yes, even if it's in addition to). It seems clear that if laziness isnt the reason one doesnt upgrade, then that same user doesnt really NEED to update and keep it updated, which was the point, in the first place. If a user wanted and needed to keep it updated, they wouldn't let it fall behind several versions. Besides, were still waiting for you to overclock that 2500k and retest your gpus from several months ago to show you how it was holding back those gpus...so, it doesnt surprise me in the least things like this also do not get updated.
You asked how popular that was and 2/3 say no. Overall the idea was not accepted by the author, nor an overwhelming majority of poll respondents. It is what it is.
Im curious, why do you 'call' W1z back into this in your post?
