Windows XP and Vista users have six months to upgrade their operating systems or get the hell off of Steam.

“Steam will officially stop supporting the Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems,” Valve, the company that operates Steam, said in a post to its XP and Vista support community. “This means that after that date the Steam Client will no longer run on those versions of Windows. In order to continue running Steam and any games or other products purchased through Steam, users will need to update to a more recent version of Windows.”

Windows XP users are a tiny fraction of Steam’s overall user base, only 0.22 percent according to Valve’s own tracking. However, 0.22 percent out of a total of 125 million Steam users, is roughly 275,000 users who will no longer have access to Counter-Strike unless they upgrade. That’s a lot of potentially annoyed customers.
