I just bought like a month ago, but I bought on a Linux machine, so maybe it counted.

Unless it has been changed, I believe Valve described their algorithm along the lines of "7 days after your purchase it will count towards the OS you've used the most to play it. If you haven't played the game at that point it will counts towards the OS you used to buy it"

I often buy games in batches, so I usually don't play games for a week or two after purchase. I think I fired up DF on my Steam Deck though in that first week, so I'm probably good, but that's why I generally buy on my desktop so it gets credited even if I don't get around to playing it for a little while.
