Not sure why it took YEARS for that option.

Probably a lot to do with the DRM really.
Some games don't seem to offer to install on another HDD, for example Borderlands has no option, whereas GTA IV does.
Why is this?

Actually, probably a lot to do with this:
GTA IV uses Steam's new-ish HTTP-based content delivery system, which also uses a new file manifest format (ACF files vs GCF/NCFs), Borderlands probably still uses the old NCF-based system which doesn't have the flexibility to be installed out of location.

I do this very radically.Simply, I use my main OS as Ubuntu and 2ry OS for games is win7.Altough, Ihave an Xbox 360 Slim already.
Steam finally realized people had more then one hard drive with their games on them as they needed more space. I've tried to keep my primary OS separate from my games, movie files for years. It's about time.

Not sure I agree with that. As my Steam install resides on D: and I have never had issues.

I think you're confusing Steam install location with library install location(s), you could install Steam to any drive you want - but any files would have to be within steamapps\common\.
