There are a lot more than that.

Uhm, what?
I see everyone saying/reiterating that same thing but it's simply not that easy. Most derivatives are more or less similar so I don't see where the big problem is as long as you can port it properly (which is not as straightforward since DirectX has apis for video, audio, input devices etc. while it is not unified in Linux).
