After 7 months of seeing the Linux user share on Steam continue to grow, December saw 2021 end with it dropping slightly.
I think we can now firmly say that we are the 1%? Another month is down as so the latest Steam Hardware Survey numbers are out and it continues being very positive for Linux gaming.
Something magical appears to be happening on Steam. Not only is Linux above 1% for another month but we've now seen 6 months of it continuing to rise.
I still can't quite believe it but the Linux user share on Steam has not only remained above 1% for three months, it's actually risen again.
We don't usually comment directly on the Steam Hardware Survey every month, not unless it's something real interesting and this is the second month where it is because we're still officially above 1%!
The day I'm sure many have been waiting for, and just as many probably thought it wouldn't happen. Linux has finally hit 1% again on the Steam Hardware Survey.
The Steam Hardware Survey for October 2018 shows a small drop for Linux, a look at daily and monthly active users
After initially showing the decrease as an increase, it seems Valve have now corrected the Steam Hardware Survey results for October 2018.
Valve have put up their usual monthly survey and the interesting thing for us is that the Linux share is the highest it's been for some time now.
Something I forgot to write up, was that the latest Steam survey is out. Linux dropped by 0.08% according to the figures.
It's always interesting to see what Linux gamers are running on their main gaming computers, so it's fun to see our statistics grow each month. The latest data is now available.
Our user survey is now done automatically from your profiles every month. On the 1st of December a fresh lot was generated.
Another month goes by and another Steam Hardware Survey was done, I got a pop up this month and it seems we have increased our share two months in a row on Steam.
Here are the latest results from the monthly GOL survey. These results are from the survey filled out this month in relation to March.
Here are the latest results from the monthly GOL survey. Wait, you already did February? Previously we were showing the results as the month we presented results, which was wrong (last months posted was amended).
Blimey, another month already? That's right here's the results of our latest Linux & SteamOS user survey.
Another month, and another survey done. The latest results are in and the findings are within normal expectations. This leads me to a question I want to ask everyone.
