Currently, Windows 7 is still the operating system with the most users. However, for gamers, Windows 10 is the favourite operating system.

According to statistics uploaded by Valve, as many as 60.62 percent of Steam users use Windows 10 64-bit versions, up 6.62 percent compared to last year.

Meanwhile, all operating systems made by Microsoft controlled a market share of up to 96.44 percent.

Based on Valve’s report, Windows 10 has twice as many users as Windows 7, which has a market share of 30.93 percent among gamers who use Steam, reports Digital Trends.

Only 2.87 percent of Steam users use MacOS and the remaining 0.59 use Linux. The reason Windows 10 adoption is higher compared to ordinary consumers is that gamers usually use computers with the latest specifications.

In terms of components, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 is the most widely used graphics card with 13.31 percent market share among Steam gamers.

This shows a 0.81 percent increase from last year. In addition, it is known that Steam gamers use most monitors with Full HD resolution.
