Steam’s Survey Shows Windows 8 Already Beating Mac
According to the latest Steam hardware survey, Windows 8 is becoming the fastest growing operating system among Steam users, with 4.69% of the distribution platform’s users employing it. Microsoft’s latest OS has even overtaken the combined Mac OS X variants. As a point of comparison, Windows 7 dominates the chart with just under 75% of the user base, with Windows XP maintaining a healthy second place, with just over 10% of users.
Windows 8 experienced a 2.66% growth relative to last month’s survey, while Windows 7 and XP experienced small declines of less than 1%.
The hardware survey is an opt-in service, so the polled data only reflects those users who were willing to partake.
