It's interesting to read the monthly surveys. Gives you a general idea of who uses what.

I can imagine the drop in Windows users on there are because they're Mac users who don't need to use Windows purely for Steam now.

Yeah, but what else are they collecting?? I don't like it when companies collect data like this and tell you it is to make a better game. Fishy, I bet they sell the data to make money.

While I understand your concern, my attitude and thought is don't use it. Trust me; we use our computers enough that they've already collected enough data about you, your habits, likes and dislikes.

Ever wondered how they just happen to know your interests when you surf the web?

At any rate the data is interesting. Gives you perspective.

However there is a way to stop it.... disconnect from the internet
