Check out our Monthly Survey Page to see what our users are running.

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. If this is still correct and it has been a long time since you updated, you can simply click here to continue to be included. If this isn't correct, click here to go to your User Control Panel to update it!

 

Note: Some people still have Ubuntu-GNOME and Antergos set as their distribution, since neither actually exist any more with Ubuntu-GNOME now just being Ubuntu and Antergos announcing their shut-down both will be removed soon as options.

Hmm, I use sway, but that wouldn't really fit the "window manager" category, would it?
I would be a bit curious regarding Wayland vs X :)

Me too, even if I assume the number of Wayland users are quite low in the group of gamers, I would like to see this added as an option so that it can be tracked in the monthly statistics. I'm maybe one of the few Plasma Wayland users even on my gaming machine.

Liam, can you add new distros? For example OpenMandriva?

It's very nice for the first time since this survey started to be observing a genuine trend away from dual booting.

It's super encouraging for Linux gaming and it's actually very easy now without making any major sacrifices to your game library.

Do they have an SVG logo anywhere I can access and use?

How would be the best way to phrase it?

Sure.

In case it matters, that's a PNG embedded in an SVG, not an actual vector image.

It looks like the percentage calculus is a bit wonky. See the below picture.



The percentage change is the same, but the amount of people is wildly different. It's the same for several other stats too, not just this one. It's just extra visible here due to so few variables.

It's correct, as it's comparing to the previous month, with the later month having less who answered.

Edit: I guess I can see why that's confusing, since I'm doing it directly against the previous percentage and not the actual percentage difference.

Update: I've now corrected that to be the actual percentage difference, not the plain change. Better?
