That goes both ways. The majority of Mac owners I know aren't exactly the definition of "competent" computer users, and certainly don't game on them (That's not to say all are - most Mac users I know only check their email on them). That's not to say Linux doesn't have gamers, but it's certainly not a large enough group to warrant an entire port, when Runic is such a small studio.

They have access to sales figures by platform for Torchlight 1, and all of that fancy stuff. But while my anecdotal evidence cannot support generalizations (which I understand my supposition is based off of), I do know that if Torchlight were to be made available as a direct port for Linux, even just for the most popular distros, my father would be more than willing to pay for it to support something he really believes in.
