It took only 8 months for Windows 10 to overtake Windows 7 in Steam share data, thus becoming the top operating system for those who are playing games using Valve’s gaming platform.
Specifically, Windows 10 64-bit is now the leading choice for Steam gamers with a share of 36.97 percent, up no less than 2.96 percent in the last month.
Windows 7 has been the top option for many years, but last month it dropped 1.22 percent to 32.99 percent and thus lost the first place. Windows 8.1 64-bit is also losing users, down 0.31 percent last month, so it’s now at 12.93 percent on Steam.
Overall, Windows 7 still leads the charts thanks to the 6.97 percent share of the 32-bit, but version-wise, the 64-bit SKU of Windows 10 keeps growing and will continue to do so in the coming months too.
