It's odd that they'll port to Mac OS, which has less users than Linux.

Careful with numbers. For instance, servers are rarely used for gaming (save by some BOFHs)...

That said, they are not entirely wrong. I am wondering if there is a market for people willing to buy closed software on an open platform. ROI shouldn't be neglected, since it can possibly easier/less expensive to support closed platforms than open ones. Note the possibly keyword, since it's kinda hard to confirm/dismiss with the current data, especially since many (most?) Linux users that bought games have usually a good technical expertise on computers.

That said, many great games are free. The better ones ain't always those with flashy 3D eyecandy.
