    This is the best summary I could come up with:

    The Linux user share on Steam has smashed through the 2% barrier.

    Not actually for the first time though, it did initially rise up above 2% in March 2013, shortly after the original Steam for Linux release when it left Beta.

    Part of the reason it had higher numbers at the start, was that Valve added a special Tux item into Team Fortress 2 only on Linux but it quickly dropped in the following months.

    With the latest info though from the May 2024 survey, Linux has now hit 2.32%.

    If I have my historical data correct, we haven’t seen Linux be over 2% since 2013.

    Take into account the explosive growth of Steam as a platform and that’s quite a lot of people now.
