      Considering SteamPlay came out of beta only on the 29th I seriously doubt that this had much to do with it...

      More probably it was a combination of the continued effects of the semi-recent bug fix put in to stop web café and other machines that are running practically 24/7 from skewing figures and the waning popularity of PUBG. Both of these recently caused the share of total users with simplified Chinese as their indicated language to shoot up as high as 56% (in the latest survey it's declined down to 25%).

        I wish it was possible to see count rather than percentage, and that we could exclude the Chinese users from the survey results viewer.

          Also if lots of people switched to the beta client they may no longer be being counted. IIRC the beta client disables the survey.

              Received the survey pop-up on the Linux Beta client yesterday (which I did submit). Honestly this may be the first time I remember getting one on while on Linux.

                That's not too bad. It implies roughly (very roughly) that 1 of every 200 Steam users are on GNU/Linux.

                The peak number of steam users online today was 16 million ( https://store.steampowered.com/stats/ ). So the hardware survey implies ~80,000 players were gaming on GNU/Linux at today's peak hour.

                  i wish they wouldn't use the disputable survey (last time it popped up for me was 3 years ago when i last booted up windoze...) but instead use the actual usage that is also used for determining the sale-platform (most hours played in the first 2 weeks).
                  Personally, i'm fairly certain that those numbers would be largely different ^^

                    I'm sure once proton matures more and we see a few hundred white-list titles(by valve), then growth might be more obvious. Still too early for steam-play IMO.
