    1.91 *(1-0.43) = 1.088

    So, 1.088% is Linux desktop, laptop etc. An impressive achievement after 10 years of presence on Steam and a supposedly better system.

      Anyone know what is going on with the Chinese gamer thing? Why does it regularly change so much from month to month? What makes Chinese gamers as a group game a lot one month and much less another?

      It doesn't quite make sense to me. Is it some sort of government crackdown thing (as it often is over there)?

        In real life Linux is tragically insecure (rivals the security of Windows Vista but it's still quite better), unstable and unfit.
        You live in a parallel universe because this is complete nonsense in this one.

          In your opinion, based on your subjective intuition with bias towards Microsoft and NVIDIA corporations.

            I am wondering if I use Linux laptop for games and Steam Deck also, I was calculated twice or only as Deck user?

              There is proprietary software such as Chrome and Steam running on just about every desktop distro.

                Have you seen Microsoft's QA in recent years? I'm not sure they have much of an edge when it comes to serious or embarrassing bugs. If anything a vendor distribution can smooth over a lot of regressions. It certainly seems to be working for Valve.

                  Please come back at me when you're ready to argue using facts, best industry practices and research.

                  Your message doesn't contain anything other than low level ridicule.

                    You have not provided any facts, evidences or researches regarding your statements about Windows being more secure in this thread, so perhaps you should dial down your hypocrite knob a bit.

                    I'm sure you will post some arbitrary Linux kernel bug list now which proves nothing about being less secure than Windows. Don't forget to bring in your best "argument" that you made several contributions so you are automatically correct Also ignore and block everyone, who destroys you on logic level, as you always do.

                      because the survey is HIGHLY unreliable as people who get it seems to be selected at random, if for one month barely any chinese players receive it (for whatever reason, could be a bug as it happened in the past for amd gpu numbers if I remember correctly) then results will change, it's the same for linux numbers and why it makes no sense to report about it each month...
                      it may not be as unreliable as tiobe index or distrowatch but it's not much better either, I do understand that it generates trafic but you should take them with a grain of salt and not try to read too much into them.
