Steam Users are Quickly Opting For Windows 10, Does it Suggest Trend for Gamers at Large?

Windows 10 Creators Update

According to Steam’s monthly hardware and software surveys, PC gamers are slowly shifting to Windows 10 from Windows 7.

Each month, Valve conducts surveys that are used to better the services and offers. And although not everyone participates in the surveys, one can always expect a small section of the community having its voice heard.

According to Jul. 2015 survey, 64-bit Windows 7 still remains Steam users’ choice of operating system with 44.91% users using it even after coming down by 1.01%. 64-bit Windows 8.1 sits at 31.85% after going up 0.63% from last month. 32-bit Windows XP sits at fifth spot with 2.85% after coming down 0.22%. And finally, 64-bit Windows 10 is sitting at 2.21 with an increase of 1.16%.

Windows Stats on Steam

If we combine both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 10, the operating system sits at 2.30% of all Steam users who participated in the Jul. 2015 survey. Moving away from Microsoft Windows, a total of 3.23% of survey machines ran Mac OS X 10.6 or newer versions and Ubuntu is lagging behind with mere 0.89%.

Considering all these things, Windows 10 with 2.30% seems like a decent figure and may take more from Windows 7 market share once Microsoft has dealt with minor errors and bugs.
