The start of a new month means the ritual of looking at the latest Steam survey data. September 2016 brought a small increase to the number of Linux gamers.

For September 2016 the Steam Linux usage increased by +0.11%, or an increase of 0.94% while Windows dropped by 0.33% and macOS increased by 0.25%. The 0.94% metric is still off the close-to-2% Linux numbers when Steam originally launched on Linux but at least higher than it's been the past few months.

Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS remains the most popular Linux OS on Steam.
