A friend of mine and I had a little LAN a few weeks ago. (shortly after I joined the Winamp DB) We played quite a bit of Half-Life online, which was great fun. Hadn't played that with other people for a long time. We played a bit of Sven-Coop as well, which, again, was great fun. We then tried to install CS, and that's when I had my first encounter with Valve's Steam. I don't think I'm a dumb person, but I just plain didn't understand that program. I downloaded the distribution of Steam that had the most recent version of CS shipping with it, as cache files, and I couldn't find out how to install it. We eventually gave up.

I know quite a lot of programs that have crappy usability, but Steam is just... I can't even find any words for it, it's just that bad.
