Steam Linux Usage For Last Month Was Just Shy Of 0.9%

The July 2015 Steam Survey results are now available! Back in June the Steam Linux usage was falling further but how did Linux gaming perform in July?

The Steam Survey results peg the overall Linux usage at 0.89%, which is an increase of just 0.02% over the month prior. Ubuntu 15.04 x86_64 and the smaller, unlisted distribution releases were the gainers.

Overall, not too much to see with the numbers remaining mostly flat as would be expected given there's been no major shifts yet -- no Steam Machines yet, SteamOS is still brewing, and there's still not any worthwhile Linux exclusive game titles.
