This might not mean much to those who have Steam at home, but when Steam Machines roll in, this will be a very big feature. You can have your massive Steam library on your main PC, and simply stream whatever game you want to play to your freshly unpacked Steam Machine. This will save transferring tens of gigabytes of data across, or worse, re-downloading those massive games.
