What happened now? Valve’s monthly poll on Steam has been released. Usually we are more interested in what video cards are installed on the computers of the participants, but the interesting parts of the June results are related to the operating system and processor sections. In the case of the former, the initial outcry against Windows 11 seems to be waning as the OS hits the 20% user share milestone.
Several latest reports showed that Windows 11 is slowly but surely outperforming its predecessor, and much more. Steam Users use the new operating system with its gaming-centric features: in May, Windows 11 was installed on 19.59% of users’ computers, and in June this figure rose to 21.23%, or more than one in five. Meanwhile, Windows 10 (64-bit) dropped 2.63%.
