I deserve it!

I bought this game some time back because like so many I wanted to relive so many of the classic games, just to find out that I wasn't going to be able to get this to work (actually I guess there is some sort of temporary fix, but it seems like it's more work than it's worth).
This game is a good lesson for me to make SURE I read the forums before purchasing a game. I knew better, but for some reason I just skipped over the whole doing my research part, and went ahead and bought the game anyway.
Hopefully the 5 bucks or so I spent on this game will go a long way to help keep me doing my part, and checking on the forums before buying games. So even though I don't like wasting my money, I guess I really did deserve it, because I didn't take 30 seconds to read what others have said.
I know others will say that you don't deserve to lose you money because Steam should check on these things before offering them, which I could also agree with, but since I knew that this could happen, and all I had to do to avoid it was quickly browse the forums, I go back to my original statement that I deserve what I got because I was lazy.

I disagree that you deserved it, steam should insure a basic level of quality for any product they host on their service.

This is what GOG does and they are a smaller company...

Except that GOG doesn't. Many of their products aren't updated at all and have numerous issues with modern operating systems. I cite Gorky 17 from personal experience.
