Which is sad... to be honest there are worst companies than EA. The EA hate train/circlejerk never stops and people take it as a fact over time, I've seen people so against EA that they don't want any EA games running natively on GNU/Linux. I think the hate has gone out of proportions to the point that it's ridiculous, such as winning the worst company in America. Just a note, I'm not saying EA didn't do anything wrong, they did their share of horrible mistakes. Origin is no different than Steam. I actually like Origin client more than Steam and I feel it's more responsive as well. Then again that's just me. This article more or less sums up my thoughts.
