World of Goo is one of the few games I can play on my netbook but it would be nice to play it on my desktop as well without having to sync up my save manually.  Also if I bring my steam account to someone else's computer to play with it, it would be nice to have my save game without having to carry it with me.

They're supposed to port it to other games eventually, but not yet.. 

MY bet is it'll apply to Valve games first, and 3rd party games eventually..
