GOL SteamOS & Linux Survey results for February

Posted by , | Views: 12,479
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).

Since the questions you answer are for the month before, going forward I will name the correct month in the article title that the results correlate to. So, I'm announcing these in March (and previously we would say "survey results for March"), but the questions were all about February, hope that makes sense. If it doesn't let me know.

Some new questions this month which will continue into other months, as requested.

A good solid response this month, which makes the graphs look pretty good and accurate compared to last month.

Still quite a lot of people use Wine, and it's not surprising since there's still a vast amount of games we don't have. Hopefully as more games get ported this will go down.

I would like to thank Feds once again for doing the graphs for us.

I never knew we got around ~1500 survey responses per month. I didn't think GoL was that popular, but that's great!

GOL is probably more popular than most people realise, and the people who do this survey are a tiny fraction of our overall visitor count.

It's also linked monthly on /r/linux_gaming subreddit, I expect we have quite a few people filling out the survey who don't regularly visit this site. Might make for an interesting unique question next month.

Before GOL, I would read Phoronix, now I don't read Phoronix very often.

You're welcome, glad I can help
Unfortunately coffee can substitute sleep only up to a certain level so this time I haven't implemented any visible improvement, maybe next time!

Wow a 20% drop between December & February of people who bought games on Steam, that's not a good sign for Valve.

ps I was going to buy a Steam link the other day, but when I got to the GAME store they'd put the price up from £39.99 for a link on it's own to £99.99 for a link & controller bundle & no option to buy the link on it's own at all.

It looks like Humble picked up most of the slack. Linux gamers are just more savvy about DRM-free.
