Neowin noticed the userbase of Windows 10 hit an all-time high of 51.2 percent in the latest Steam hardware survey.
The latest report by Valve indicates that 50.15% of Steam users are utilizing the 64-bit version of Windows 10, whereas 1.05% are using the 32-bit version, accounting for an overall user base of 51.2%. This is a sizeable increase of 2.43 percentage points compared to the data from last month. All other iterations of the operating system either remained stagnant in terms of user base or declined. Windows 7 tumbled down to 34.74% - a noticeable decrease of 2.07 percentage points. Overall, Windows still gained user base, solidifying its position as the most-preferred OS at 96.05%.
This means the adoption of Windows 10 among gamers is much higher than the general population, as the latest statistics from NetMarketShare show a marketshare of just 25.36 percent for Windows 10.
