    Seeing as it's called MICROSOFT direct x, that is pretty doubtful.

    There already is directx for linux.
    Well... Not natively.

    A program called VMWare, is a "virtual machine" that runs in an xterm. You can run ANY os, with full API.
    It's currently avaliable for Linux and soon for Windows NT.
    It requires a lot of resources, and it's a bit slow. But my god, this program is a godsend for linux users that don't want to reboot to play games or to use more friendly database program or what-have-you.

    no, I'm not affiliated with vmware. =P
