    Good. Now we don't have to argue with people every time CS:S is updated.

    I believe Base shared source was for the beta... so it was kinda obsolete regardless.

    I wonder what could cause the creation of a Tools section now?

    The SDK, of course...;)

    I think it's just because these things aren't games actually.
    When I started Steam I got the message 'Validating Steam Files'. Here is the screenshot. Do you guys had that too?

    Neither have they been since Steam was first released.

    I guess they just realised that putting the SDK under "My Games" was a bit of a stretch.

    I still wish that steam had collapsable menus and the ability to remove games you don't want from the list (as to keep it un-cluttered)

    Yeah, I like that idea (although I've got everything installed even though I'll never play some of them). Maybe get rid of all games which you don't have downloaded (the darkened out ones) and have a link at the bottom to view games that you have access to but aren't installed.
