According to Steam’s recent hardware survey, gamers are ditching their trusty Windows XP and flocking to the new kid, Windows 7.
The statistics show a total increase of 2.47% for Windows 7, which includes both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions, while Windows XP is seeing a sharp decrease of 3.2%. Which means, 23% of Steam gamers are Windows 7 users!
Looks like Microsoft finally got things right, after the disaster that is Vista.
Another item of interest is the 64-bit OS adoption rate. Be it the odd Windows Server 2003 or even Windows XP, every single version of 64-bit Wiindows is seeing an increase in adoption.
