Here's another way to look at the Linux market share on Steam

Probably off-topic, so put it under spoiler.

Spoiler, click me
Quotebut how did you come to such conclusion?
I am actually live in one of aforementioned countries, and I doubt they will bring any kind of freedom to the world.

QuotePower of corporations is a grim alternative to power of dictators.
No, just no. All the most horrible atrocities were commit by states, governments. Look at 20th century and even now. Corporations are little children compared to them. Plus I never had this resentment against corporations to begin with. I would take Microsoft over Putin any day.

You forgot North Korea and Iran. s/

In all seriousness after your post, especially third part, I want to buy copy of Windows and support all corporations and capitalists around the world.

QuoteWhat I find hilarious is that if PUBG had a linux version that ran equal to or better than the windows version linux would be sitting at about 50% share on Steam right now.

What I find more hilarious is that PUBG uses UE4 engine and can be relatively easy ported to Linux, yet "For the moment, a Linux version is not in the plan." They will probably port it to consoles first and swim in monies.

QuoteAlso a spike in Windows users may relate to a trend for one game in particular(i.e PUBG) and that benefits only the devs of that game.

That benefit all windows devs, because all those people who came for PUBG can buy another game or two, or maybe 10 who knows.

Quotehardly any Linux users are getting access to the survey.

Yeah, grand scale conspiracy as usual.

QuoteWeird part is that they are paying for software (at least for games like pubg).
This speech is 20 years old. Now there are lots of well off Chinese who can pay for their OS and games.

Unfortunately our numbers are still insignificant. Probably it's more profitable now to make Chinese localizations than port games to Linux.

What games do you want ported to Linux? Feral Interactive want to know again

Path of Exile, Guild Wars 2 and Diablo 3 maybe.

Mad Max to release on 20th of October for Linux & SteamOS, being ported by Feral Interactive

I wonder, if it will work on amdgpu-pro driver. Even Shadow of Mordor and Borderlands 2 run well on amdgpu-pro.

Project Cars official twitter confirms to me there are no plans for it on Linux now

QuoteI don't understand Valve's indifference in all these broken promises and massive delays...
I don't want to be thoroughly pessimistic, but as I see it, SteamOS was Valve vanity project and it more or less flopped. So Valve cares less and less about linux/steamos it seems.
