With the latest numbers though, there is a dip in the overall Linux user share with it now at 1.23%. A relative drop of “0.04%” which some may attribute to just noise but that’s what the survey says. Historical data can be found on our Steam Tracker like the below graph snapshot:

I’m sure some will argue about combining distributions together, like Arch and Manjaro that would put them on top but really they’re quite different. Just like how SteamOS has its own update schedule, so does Manjaro they’re just based-on Arch. A bit different for Pop and Ubuntu, which share the same base directly.

As for devices, Steam Deck is clearly top for Linux with it’s GPU being used by 17.07% putting it at the top for Linux players. That’s an +3.35% increase compared with last month too, so the lead is only continuing to grow. Once again though, it’s still not even showing up in the Windows stats meaning very few overall people are using Windows on the Steam Deck.
