Windows 10 continues to grow on Steam, now the favorite of more gamers than ever

Posted in:

Valve has released this week its latest Steam hardware survey for the month of October and Microsoft’s Windows 10 is now at an all-time high. With a combined OS share of 49.33 (up 0,64%), Windows 10 is once again progressing following a surprising hiccup in September when usage of the new OS dropped from 0.05%.

This month, Windows 10 64-bit recorded the highest increase (up 0.70%) while the 32-bit version of the OS was down 0.06%. Among other highlights, Windows 7 still claims a combined OS share of 34.21% (down 0.51%) while Windows 8.1 is below the 10% bar at 8.97% (up 0.07%).

As a reminder, Windows 10 64-bit became the most popular OS among Steam gamers back in March, claiming at the time a 36.97% share. With the holiday season nearing, we’ll see if the OS manages to maintain its current growth rate in the next two months. If it does, Windows 10 64-bit could then well cross the 50% bar in the first months of 2017.
