Reminder: Update your PC info for the next round of statistics updates

Posted by , | Views: 6,870

This is your once a month reminder to make sure your PC information is correct on your user profiles. A fresh batch of statistics is generated on the 1st of each month.

You need to be logged in to see when you last updated your PC info!

You can see the statistics any time on this page.

If you want your details to actually be included in the monthly survey, be sure to head here and tick the box labelled "Include your PC details in our Monthly User Statistics?" and hit the "Update" button at the bottom, it's opt-in and you can uncheck it at any time not to be included in future statistics gathering.

PC Info is automatically purged if it hasn't been updated, or if you don't click the link to remain in for 2 years. This way we prevent too much stale data and don't hold onto your data for longer than required.

Nice to see stable growth of AMD GPUs usage.

Also interesting to note the rising usage of Wine and dropping dualbooting. It must be related to all the latest Wine, dxvk and Proton progress.

Some suggestions. Can you please make an option to toggle off all graphs in a single trends section? For instance using graphs with all GPUs is almost impossible (there are so many), if you want to focus just on a small subset. I had to manually switch off many from a huge list, sifting through them all. It would be useful to be able to turn all off, and then gradually enable them back for only those that you want to analyze.

Also, it would be very useful to see total amount of users in the month value in trends (in the tooltip), not just percentages. It gives the data more meaning.

QuoteWhen was the last time you used Wine to play a Windows game?
I think the answers here will be very different depending on how people interpret Wine to also include Proton. Perhaps rephrase, or add another question?

Proton is Wine with modifications, so it includes it. I don't think it's confusing to ask just about Wine.

I changed my Wine usage setting due to Proton

Should we differentiate between Wine & Proton/Steamplay now?

Cheers

Edit:
Should have read the earlier comments lol

Hi

I didn't change anything, but for next time, a Proton/WINE distinction would be nice i think.
Luticus 25 November 2018 at 8:00 pm UTC
Yea, Proton I view differently than wine as Proton still counts as a Linux sale. Though I exclusively use Proton/Wine setups to play ONLY games I already owned many years ago before Debian became my primary gaming system (skyrim) or to play games that were purchased for me as a gift (such as elder scrolls online). Seems to be a pattern there . I never purchase any game or application with the intent to use it with wine or proton, I only support native Linux software, which is why I marked wine usage as never. Actually I'd recommend changing the wine question from "how often you use wine" to "did you purchase anything with the intent to use it on wine", as that's a much more accurate representation of people's buying habits and therefore more relevant to developers anyway.

I count Proton as Wine, so I updated my profile a month or so ago to reflect this. I'm currently playing through Fallout: New Vegas using it.

This has nothing to do with Wine and Proton though, but with who and how is counting it. I.e. Proton is Wine regardless of that.
TheSyldat 25 November 2018 at 9:21 pm UTC
Yeah I'd like Proton to be its own question to properly separate them and have a clear statistical view of regular wine versus proton use.
dubigrasu 25 November 2018 at 9:24 pm UTC
I do think there should be some distinction between Steam's Proton and vanilla Wine, regardless the connection between the two.
I would be interested to know how many people are ready to accept the lower-effort Proton way, but still don't wanna bother with Wine for example.
