Of the people surveyed, 0.18% are using Vive and 0.09% are using Oculus, suggesting VR is quite a ways off being mainstream at the moment. ThatHTC Vive price hikewon’t help, either. Thanks, Brexit.

Elsewhere, Windows 10 is leading the operating system race, with a whopping 44.93% of those surveyed using the OS. This has risen 1.99% in the last month and it will be interesting to see if that changes now it’s no longer a free upgrade.

It’s worth noting that this is only a sampling of Steam’s audience, but even 1% of over 100 million people is a lot of people, so it’s likely a meaty portion.
