Just weeks after a native Linux client launched for Valve's popular Steam digital distribution service, Linux users already make up more than two percent of all Steam users.
Steam for Linux launched last month
with more than 100 games readily available for Linux OS users, including a multitude of Valve games like Half-Life, Counter-Strike Source
and Team Fortress 2
As part of Valve's monthly hardware and software survey for Steam, the company revealed that
the platform nearly has as many Linux users as it does Mac users.
Linux users now make up approximately 2.05 percent of all Steam users, while in comparison Mac users account for 3.07 percent. Steam for Mac has been available since May 2010
Notably, the Linux for Steam client had been available as a private (and later public) beta for some time before this official release last month -- hence, the platform hasn't strictly picked up all of these users within the last month.
