Steam's latest hardware survey 150; more than 2x Linux users

The combined total of all Linux distros is 2.02% – still a fledgling next to the other major operating systems, but one that’s growing quickly. December’s confirmed Linux userbase accounted for 0.8% of the Steam user pot, meaning in two months Steam Linux gamers have more than doubled.

Thats nice to see more linux gamers, I'd be joining them if the amd drivers for my 7950 worked worth a crap on linux for gaming. Maybe some day, soon.

If I could have gotten more games to work on Linux, I'd probably have stuck around with it on my personal computer. I spent quite a while to get most of the Blizzard games to work, but Mech Warrior Online wouldn't even come close to cooperating.

I just dual boot. It would be nice to see enough of my games on Linux to where I could finally delete that pesky Windows partition.

Maybe because I'm weird & prefer Hidden Object games & Match 3 games, but haven't found one yet that WINE won't play, one of which wouldn't play at all on my Windows 7 side of my Dell Studio 1745 works great in Wine, go figure.

I'd love to see more games working on my Linux install as well. There's no reason why all the OS X Steam collection shouldn't be ported already.

Either way, it's good news to see it grow.

Let me know if you can get Mech Warrior Online to work with WINE. I'd make a switch then.
