An anonymous reader writes "Valve on Friday updated its Hardware & Software Survey for December 2012, and the news is very good for Microsoft. Yet the company wasn’t the only one to go home with a big win at the end of last year: even Canonical has good reason to celebrate."

Survey Here: http://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey [steampowered.com] If you look at the survey Windows 7 lost a total of 2.09% and Windows 8 gained a total of 2.24%, the Linux gains (now capturing 0.8% of steam users) would of course be due to Steam for Linux beta releasing late last year. So, where is this "ditching" you're talking about, we're talking minimal amount of switching of OSs here.
