Remember the days of the original green Steam client, that no one particularly liked? Hard to believe that it now sees over 30 million people online.
This huge new record was hit yesterday, with the new all-time peak according to the Steam Charts page at 30,027,003. However, SteamDB lists it as 30,032,005. During this time the top games were Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, PUBG: Battlegrounds, Apex Legends and Lost Ark. So three out of the top five when Steam was at its peak work on Linux officially — not bad. About 8.5 million people were actually in-game at the time.
While I have you here: what have you been playing recently, what's your current top game on Linux? I've been sucked in really hard by Brotato, trying out all the different characters and weapons has been a lot of fun.

A great mix of Cyberpunk 2077, Skyrim VR, Minecraft, Ultrakill and Legion TD 2.
Beautiful looking game, that runs pretty good, despite many complaining about performance. Needs Proton Experimental though.
Before that I have been playing ECHO. Not a perfect game (it's getting a bit repetitive), but it manages to drag you in with its superb graphics, sound, and atmosphere.
Currently playing VirtuaVerse (from GOG)
I've gone back to Stellaris, trying out a Devouring Swarm. Kind of silly--just when they've bumped up diplomacy I'm playing a scourge that responds to diplomacy with "We Hunger". And for breaks between other stuff, some Urtuk: The Desolation.
