    Anyone else bothered about the amount of 32 bit users out there?

    Now they need to add a stat for Wine usage.

    Lightbulb What could be improved

    I think it is really nice that Valve publishes more sophisticated information on their userbase.
    But why not show this data in relation to all Linux Users (to the 2.x% of all Steam users), so maybe you could see more behind values like 0.00%.
    I wouldn't suggest this if Steam wouldn't have so many users to actually be able to do this.

    I'm rather bothered by the amount of Ubuntu users out there.

    Looks like 64-bit is the standard by now. Can we not just forget about 32-bit for AMD/Intel (finally)?

    Would be nice to see those numbers divided by 2.5% (i.e. scaled to just talk about Linux users and make the numbers a bit bigger).

    nah... I say let em come... The bigger the userbase the better. Even if the usebase is completely retarded it doesnt matter, they can use their distro and we can use ours.

    Don't forget that Ubuntu was the distro to have the first official support from steam, so might have quite a lot of newly converted or people simply trying that went for it, due to that. I am also pretty sure steam is unable to make the difference between Ubuntu and and official derivative like Kubuntu for example, which might inflate the number.
