dont like the name... they did chrome(chromium) there.
but lets hope some nice improvements.
really wanna see the IM integration and Achievements + gamehours tracking.
achievements not my thing tho, but it will keep players busy at least specially if there are rewards for that.

If it were somewhat interoperable with the current steam implementation of achievements, maybe some of the devs would bother implementing it. However, this would need more than changing the client, something for the web interface would be necessary as well.

Desura's "achievements" are called "accolades" and aren't really something that can be implemented on the client side. I don't think we'll be seeing them until after the Desura API is available (that's separate from the client) and game developers start using it.
