Steam has published its survey results for April 2022. According to the new data, Windows 11 is growing among the users, now having 18.94% of the user base. The adoption of the latest OS grows slowly, as many users don't welcome some of the UI changes and increased hardware requirements.
Meanwhile, Windows 10 remains the most popular OS among gamers. It holds almost 74% of the market. Actually, it still provides everything you need to play the most recent titles. Gaming enhancements Microsoft made in Windows 11 are very specific and attract a small number of users .
So, Windows 11 holds the second position after Windows 10 with a growth of 2.10%. Perhaps it could be more popular if it didn't require TPM 2.0 and the most recent CPU. One way or another, it is getting more and more users among gamers, who are often loyal to everything new, and also update their hardware more often than the average consumer.
The legacy and now-unsupported Windows 7 is on the third place with just 3% for both 32-bit and 64-bit variations, and its users base continues to fall.
The market share of Linux is about 1.14%, which is 0.14% greater than before. Ubuntu 20.04 is the most popular distro. Anyway, its value is smaller than macOS which has 2.55%.
For the hardware, the updated Steam survey data shows NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 as the most popular video card with 1920 x 1080 display resolution for single display setups. Multi-head configs mostly have the 3840 x 1080 resolution. 4 core units are at the top of the CPU listing, and 16GB is the most popular RAM configuration.
