Valve's Steam Hardware Survey has been updated for July 2013 and it indicates not much for Linux in the way of change. The Linux gamer base using Steam remains at just over 1%.

The Steam Linux usage remains at just around 1.1%, which is well below where it originally debuted at, but is hard to get an accurate figure due to the breakdown of operating systems and the "Other" OS.
