Gamers moving to Windows 7

Posted on Wednesday, December 30 2009 @ 00:45:41 CET by

Bright Side of News has analyzed the latest Steam Hardware Survey, you can read their article over here. Here's a snip about the move to Windows 7:
All these loses went in favor of Windows 7 - 64-bit version gained massive 3.62% or approximately 1.5 million gamers in a single month to capture 13.16%, overtaking all of the 64-bit OS'es combined [10.24% overall]. 32-bit version is no slouch either, gaining 2.64% in a single month for a grand total of 7.43%. Combined, Windows 7 almost has the user share of 32-bit Windows Vista and we expect to see Windows 7 overtaking Vista first combined, then 64-bit version is probably going to capture even more gamers.

During 2010, we expect to see Windows 7 replacing Windows XP as well, given the momentum we're seeing here. The real results will be December 2009 [Jan 17, 2010] and January 2010 [Feb 17, 2010] numbers will include Christmas sales and first after-Holidays month. If Windows 7 keeps the steam [pun intended], 2010 may well be the year of W7.

Gaming on Win 7 is easy - and 64 bit IS the wave to be on :)
