Steam’s December stats show a sharp rise in use of GNU/Linux thanks to their new beta version. Since they recently opened the beta numbers should increase sharply. Since gaming, formerly an M$-mostly niche quickly garnered ~1%, it is clear that GNU/Linux runs on a lot more than 1% of desktop/notebook PCs. We’ve known that for many years but some still cling to NetApplications’ reality. This is a monthly survey and the change could be dramatic next month. Stay tuned.
