By | September 1, 2010 | 16 Comments

It looks like Steam survey now also tracks software usage. While it’s just a minority of all Internet users (and all of them are gamers), you can still gather some interesting numbers.

Personally, I was curious about Microsoft Silverlight adoption. Turns out, 1 out of 2 people has actually Silverlight installed. Adobe Flash Player on the other hand dominates the market.
