I don't understand the constant hate, I've never had a problem with it. I'd prefer some competition than a Steam monopoly.

Unless there's a fix for "being the worst digital download store on the planet" then I don't care.

That was fixed well before it was even renamed Origin I believe it was EADM! But since you have never used it you would not know that.
