    1. you cherry pick the Netmarketshare numbers to 3 Months 6 Months ago they were at 1.36% and the months prior to that the numbers were at 1.4-1.8%
    2. The numbers are contradicting at the moment in the Graph you see the 1.47% you listed, but if you look at the list below it it states 2.34%, which is also different from the last month, so it's not just that numbers not actualized. That this numbers even can be out of sync questions for me the professionalism of this company, but well.
    3. We saw in last month that they need a few days to show the correct numbers they showed way to high numbers the first day(s) for Linux 2 months ago, there is a reddit post:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gamin...etmarketshare/

    So we have to wait for the update, the 2.34% makes more sense and would not even contradict the Steam numbers, because steam only counts gamers therefor only home pcs, while the Netmarketshare numbers count also business pcs, which I would expect if we only look at the desktop has 99.999% windows, because I never heard from a employee getting forced to use linux on their desktop when he wanted to use windows but the other way around is very very common.

    I would expect even higher numbers like 5-10% if we could see only home users but not limited to the small minority of gamers.

    But for now I would assume that the 2.34% are the right numbers but we have to see probably tomorow but surely in a week what the real numbers are, if the 1.47% numbers would stick I would never ever look at their side, it would proof that their statistics are completely bullshit, because it can't only be corona that explains this higher numbers even if the majority would be corona homeoffice effects, there must be more, like people that had time in corona to test out linux and that then the adoption rate from that alone would be zero and some go away, would make no sense. Even Macos profited from Corona times, so why would linux loose user numbers through corona while have more gamers... no that would make zero sense. The 2.34% would make sense less home office more forced windows business pcs run... therefor lower numbers, I get that.

    Wine/Proton has gotten better which is good and there has been a few people jumping to Linux, but this underwhelming up tick is all that will result. I'm sure Valve is swooning right now thinking its wonderful.

    "The numbers point for those gaming on Linux that the Intel CPU marketshare dropped another 1.5% to 66.6%"

    So next 1% will take 20 years - LOL .
    Usually user counts behave logarithmic. The more people use it the more people want to use it.
    But that is not with every product the case and it has to show if it will be right in our case.

    Back during August Valve reported a 0.89% marketshare for Linux compared to 0.86% in July. But for September it jumped by 0.05% to 0.94%. Given the continually increasing Steam user-base, this is likely the largest the Steam on Linux marketshare has ever been in absolute terms.
    And on NetMarketShare and Statcounter it goes the other way around.

    Steam:
    July: 0.86%
    August: 0.89%
    Sepetember 0.94%

    NetMarketShare "Operating System Market Share"for Desktop computer:
    July: 3.57%
    August: 2.69%
    September: 1.47%

    Statcounter "Desktop Operating System Market Share Worldwide":
    July: 1.85%
    August: 1.84%
    September: 1.73%

    I hope it means linux user count growing and not that epic stores eats windows users.

    Wow, that's quite big bump, hopefully the trends stays that way.

    With Apple going to ARM and hopefully some current macOS users switching to Linux instead of Windows, I think we could actually break the 2% barrier again in two or three years.
