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.
