Not very good DRM considering I can launch and play the game without even having Steam installed.
Steam=/=DRM Steamworks=DRM (if it's used as such) Steam=/=Steamworks Deus Ex=/=Steamworks
Not sure who started this ignorant rumor but I see it a lot here. Just because a game is on Steam doesn't mean it has DRM, and the majority of them don't. I'm assuming it was a dumb dumb peasant somewhere going derp u gots teh drm while being a typical ignorant peasant.

Steam is just a store client. The DRM is on a game by game basis, and is up to the publishers.
Yes, but you need Steam for the initial install setup. With the GOG version, you can throw the install file on a flash drive and upload it to any PC with just that file, no login required. In fact you never have to login to GOG again if you don't want to.
