Guru3D have a small article on the rise of gamers switching to 8.1:

If you peek at Steam's survey on OSes ytou'll notice that 21 percent of Steam gamers is now using Windows 8.x During the previous month that figure was 20.06 per cent. It looks like it won't be long until Microsoft's latest OS hits the 25 per cent milestone for Steam users, however the lead of Windows 7 seems unassailable.

Here is the January 2014 operating system list for Steam, in order of biggest to smallest share as TNW reports today:

  • Windows 8.1: 10.75 percent
  • Windows 8: 10.56 percent
  • Windows 7: 63.04 percent
  • Windows XP: 6.25 percent
  • Windows Vista: 4.30 percent
  • Mac OS X: 3.47 percent
  • Linux: 0.86 percent

Not real statistics however, plus statistics can be fooled.
The real thing to look out for is steam OS which may change how things really go.
