It's a background program. Most of the time you don't even know it's there unless you open it. Just like steam.

Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.

It's not the electronic Hitler it's made out to be. Not exactly great, but it's not bad

I've never had any complaints about Origin.

On the one hand I like the library tab better than steam's. On the other hand if I had as many games on origin as I do on steam the origin library would be a mess to navigate.

As it is and for what I use it for I don't have a problem with it. It could be better but it could also be a lot (lot lot lot) worse.

It's steam outputting deceivingly faster download speeds with a collection of EA games available for purchase that almost never go on sale.

ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

Who cares if they go on sale in Origin when they go on sale literally everywhere else? Not that Origin doesn't occasionally have sales and freebies. Seriously though, no one uses any client for the features of the client, they use them for the games that require them.
