That's one use case. Another use case is related to my own professional background. OS X is my main platform, which I used in my work as a research scientist and (later) research engineer, in a heterogenous environment that also had MS Windows and Linux workstations. Thanks to projects like Fink and MacPorts (and Cygwin) I could use the same FOSS applications on all of those platforms and they'd work (and inter-operate) as similarly as possible *).
Without having any stats I think that I'm far from being the only "that kind of user" of such software distributions systems .

*) Actually, for a very long time I used to fire up XQuartz in full-screen/rooted mode, and run an X11-based desktop, with a hotkey that allowed me to switch between that and a purely native/Aqua desktop. Best of both worlds :)
