Windows 10 now used by over a third of Steam's users, closes in on Windows 7

More Steam PC gamers are updating their rigs to Windows 10. According to the latest monthly hardware survey of Valve's PC gaming service, over a third of its users are now using some version of Windows 10.

To be more specific, the 64-bit version of Windows 10 is now in second place on the Steam OS survey (with results from January 2016) with a 32.77 percent share. The 32-bit version of Windows 10 claimed 1.28 percent on the Steam survey, which means that overall, Windows 10 is in use by 34.05 percent of Steam gamers.

The 64-bit version of Windows 7 is still on the top of the Steam OS survey list, with a 34.31 percent share. However, it is likely that the 64-bit version of Windows 10 could claim the top spot in the next month or two. Overall, the combined share of the 64-bit and 32-bit versions of Windows 7 on Steam come in at 42.08 percent share of Steam users.
