I’m one of those. I’ve been trying Linux for mainstream gaming since, I don’t know, perhaps early 2000s, but this year is the first time I actually really honestly swear to Lucifer don’t feel any need to go back to Windows.
Shit actually works now. Valve has been doing some pretty awesome finishing touches in a lot of places.
I was hoping the Steam Deck would make a bigger impact already, but I guess Steam is just too big and production is still ramping up.
Steam usebase is huge, around 20-30 million active users at any given time (probably much more in total). They need to ship a lot more Decks to have an impact on the statistics.
But on the good side, there is this: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2022/06/valve-to-ship-more-than-double-the-number-of-steam-decks-each-week/
<0.3 percentage points looks like fluctuations to me. We had that a few times already. Wake me up when it’s a statistically significant change of about 1 percentage point or so.
I mean, it’s a 30% increase… (:
Okay, I meant percentage points 😃
I didn’t got a survey since 3 months. -.-
