I think the problem is people are confusing what they want. They are complaining that they want Steam for two reasons: Unlimited computers to install it on, and less odd behavior.
See, the thing is, that's a case of a false monochotomy (in other words, they're assuming it has to be with Steam for that to happen).
Telltale can equally well change its system so as to meet these requests. No
Steam required. And there's a big bonus in favor of them doing this rather than Steam:
It actually has any chance of ever happening.
See, their Sam & Max distribution contract gives distribution rights to them and GameTap. And since GameTap is effectively a competitor to Steam, it's NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

Games fall quite fast in prince on steam. Also almost every weekend you can play a game for free (full version) for the hole weekend and stuff like that. Also steam is one big online store. Steam also got cool preload feature, that would be nice to see here on telltale. Because downloads speed are very slow just when a new episode is released. Its also nice to have all you games in one place. And you can easly run games even if you are not connected to the internet. You just select offline mode.
Steam is a blessing for many small companies, to allow then to reach out to a big group of people. Without the need to use money on cd production.

Gametap is not available in my country (Netherlands), which is of course ridiculous..
