Linux isn't the only widely supported unix.  FrreBSD , NetBSD have their adherents.  Solaris is pretty widely used just not among consumers / desktops. Then you have Mac OS X which isn't exactly unix but is unix-like in many aspects (has a bash shell, you can use vi or emacs and of course perl).   I would suspect more Mac desktops than Linux.
Servers on Mac exist but relatively rare.

Finally, Perl runs on Windows. There are a number of Windows-specific Perl modules.
