The latest hardware survey from Steam shows that Windows 10 is growing at an "incredible pace." It is expected that over half of all Windows users on Steam will be running W10 64-bit by the end of the season.

Windows 10 was the only version to increase its Steam share last month and both the 32-bit and the 64-bit flavors gained new points last month. On the other hand, all the other versions of Windows lost ground, most likely as everyone moved to Windows 10 thanks to the gaming improvements that Microsoft implemented in this version, including DirectX 12 support. As far as non-Windows platforms are concerned, there’s still no reason for Microsoft to worry about gaming competition on the PC. Mac OS X has 3.60 percent of the Steam market and version 10.11.5 is the only one that improved its share last month, growing 1.13 percent.
