I completely agree with the idea of games being a major bar to
mainstream Linux. However, I've often wondered, how OpenGL compares to
directX10. There exists a chicken and egg scenario for Linux games, but
if OpenGL, in addition to being cross-platform, actually allowed
developers to take games further than directX, they would have zero
reason for not using openGL, and the scenario would be sidestepped.

I believe for developers, the reliance on directX is the biggest reason
to not release Linux versions. Certainly if Firefox can create both
Windows and Linux binaries, so can major game studios. So, why not put
more focus on OpenGL?
