Steam On Linux Adoption Gaining, Overtaking Mac OS

Filed under
Gaming

A lot of things happen at the start of each month, and one of those that I look most forward to is being able to check out the updated hardware survey at Steam. It's especially interesting right now, because Windows 8 is only four months old, and the platform became official for Linux only a couple of weeks ago. Given it happened so recently, I think most might agree that the Linux aspect is a bit more interesting than the Windows 8 aspect at the moment.

In last month's survey (for January, 2013), Linux as a whole accounted for 1.27% of the total. This included both x86 and x86_64 versions. But, these numbers were from before the time Steam for Linux was official - so where do we stand today? At a cool 2.08%, that's where.
