    But Shmitz, the new version is better!

    And hopefully this will also be the release of mac steam, (they said april!) and I will be able to stop running L4D on my mac which crashes every time you load the next map.

    I won't be the release of Mac Steam. They only just sent out the Beta Invites to it. Probably another few weeks.

    Can't wait, aesthetically, it looks a lot better, and the functionality has greatly improved. A shit storm ensues.

    As long as it doesn't still have the bugs I've been experiencing (namely inability to start when it can't connect to the Steam servers and repeated attempts to download the same update) I'm cool. Of course, if it does, they're going to be getting an earful from me.

    As long as the overlay is fixed I'll be happy. Nothing more annoying then closing the overlay to find your keyboard unusable because it's still capturing your keys. :(

    You people who hate the new UI suck. The new UI is better in every way.

    Also, the mac beta has been running for weeks.

    They said that the mac steam will be the new steam, and now that they've finalised the beta and are realeasing it, I see no reason not to hold back on the mac version

    Yeah I can't wait for the Mac beta. My college requires me to have a mac and I don't feel like lugging around a PC too or using bootcamp/crosswhateverthehellitis.

    Remember, there's a small view for the new layout too

    People who react with shock and horror to some small problems with the new UI amuse me. It's not the end of the world - It's still Steam, it looks a little different, and it may lack a couple of things you don't really need.

    Cry some more.

    New, better library layout, a downloads tab, a better store, WebKit browser in game, faster community, fully customizable, and you can make it look like the old steam.

    I love Valve. Especially because they're not forcing this on us like other companies (YouTube, ahem)-- you can still have the old layout. :)

    You cant choose the old layout after the official release, this was just while the ui was beta.

    The new ui is better anyway, and it would be silly to have two client versions that need to be updated and taken care of.
