A little while back, we noticed a small update to the Steam mobile app added a variety of new categories to the Steam store, all of which were relevant to types of software different from the current game categories. Now, Valve has officially announced that they will begin to distribute software on Steam beginning September 5th 2012.
Valve are also keen to mention that Steam Greenlight will be one way for developers to get their software added to Steam.
What do you think Valve will include in the opening set of software titles? In a recent interview, Gabe mentioned how he had been talking to Adobe about the concept of offering their software as "Free to Play", could the Adobe suite be a part of the first round of software titles to be released on Steam? Only time will tell. Stay tuned for more updates soon. Check out the official press release here.
