Start64!The day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here – Windows 10 64-bit has finally overtaken Windows 7 64-bit as the most popular operating system for Steam users. While many people would assume that the majority of PC gamers would have immediately switched over to Windows 10 on account of its free upgrade path and general lack of downsides, the Steam community has been fighting it for a long time.

Many Steam users felt that they couldn’t trust Microsoft anymore after their rejection of Windows 8, and so they backed into Windows 7 with an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it attitude.”

The number of Steam users that utilized Windows 10 has been slowly crawling up for a while, and the last Steam hardware survey done by Valve has shown that Microsoft’s latest OS has finally overtaken Windows 7 64-bit as the majority, now taking up 36.97% of all Steam users (a number up 2.96% from last month.)
