Something interesting to me is how many people are using either Debian family or Arch family of distros.

Debian, Ubuntu, and Mint are over half, and Arch & gang are about a 1/4

Some context may be helpful, but the short of it is that I wouldn't look too far into those numbers.

1. Officially, Proton is only supported on Ubuntu. It doesn't stop you from trying though and many Arch-based OS reports are just as successful. 2. Reports people submit includes pasting Steam system info, which for some Arch installations reports as 'Linux 4.x' unless they install additional an additional library.

If you're feeling generous, count the 'Unknown' category as Arch-based.
