The Steam Survey has been updated with results for January 2016.

Sadly, there were no post-holiday gains for Linux with the survey results for January pulling back by 0.01%. Valve's reported Steam Linux gaming market-share for the past month is reported at a mere 0.95%.

This is certainly off the initial Steam Linux beta highs of close to 2% while for the past number of months now the average reported Steam Linux market-share has been at just around 1%. OS X meanwhile is coming in at 3.5% and Windows at 95.4%.
