With due respect, there is quite some difference between an adventure game using 2D graphics and an RPG making heavy use of 3D - not least the greater choice of middleware for cross-platform 2D games.

Larian might have had an easier time with Mac/Linux conversions if they had used the likes of Unity3D but it would likely have meant performance compromises (plus Unity might just not have been a viable option when D:OS started development). However the fact that a Linux port is underway (and a proper one, not just a prettied-up Wine wrapper) should be considered a positive step, however (regretfully) long the delay in releasing it.
