Every month, Valve runs a voluntary survey to collect information about the computer configurations its customers use to access Steam. This data helps developers optimize their games to reach as many gamers as possible and make wise investments in various technologies. Steam hardware and software surveys are also a great source of information about different versions of Windows and their success among gamers.

note: Participation in the survey is optional, so the data does not represent 100% of Steam users. Also, the official Steam page compares the latest data to October 2022, not November 2022, hence the difference in delta between this article and the official report.

The survey results show that Windows 11 continues to steal users from Windows 10. According to Valve, in December 2022, Windows 11 reached 28.42%, which is an increase of 0.44 points compared to November 2022.

Windows 10 64-bit, the most dominant species of operating system on Steam, lost only 0.18 points in December 2022 – the eight-bit operating system currently has a market share of 65.42%. Windows 7 64-bit experienced a similar decline. Valve says the third most popular Windows version on Steam currently has 1.66% (-0.22 points).

  1. Windows 10 64-bit: 65.42% (-0.18)
