Steam For Linux Adoption Closes In On Mac

For those of you who have been abroad the Linux Steam train since the early betas late last year, things are really on the up & up. Valve has just released its February, 2013 Steam Hardware & Software Survey, and the results are absolutely mind blowing. Linux is now standing strong as a legitimate gaming platform. It now represents 2.02% of all active Steam users. Well 2% is not a game-changing number right now, it is pretty dramatic when you consider a couple of other key metrics. For starters, the Mac represents 3.07% of Steam’s userbase. While that number is over 30% greater than Steam for Linux, it means nothing considering Steam for Mac debuted 3 years ago on May 12, 2010.
