VALVE --
With the start of a new month comes the latest figures from Valve about the OS marketshare on Steam.

According to Valve, during March 2018 the Steam Linux market-share increased by 0.05%, to an overall market-share of 0.33%. Windows meanwhile is reported at 97.94% and macOS at 1.64%.

Granted, many Linux gamers believe these figures are distorted or inaccurate, but long story short most Linux game studios don't tend to report their Linux customer base at more than 1% except in some rare and extreme cases.

The latest monthly Steam statistics are available from the Steam Survey.
