Desktop Linux (including all distros ) has less than 6% market share, there is no market for linux gaming. Linux is good for server technologies though
Linux is a great OS for Desktop use. Anyone who says otherwise has never truly
tried Linux. I use it 24/7 on all of my machines. And it even runs most Windows games (via Wine) perfectly fine with little to no issues. MW3 runs 100% great through Wine. BF3 Can't at the moment because Wine is capped at DX9 ( but they are already integrating DX10 into it, at which point BF3 will be playable ( with at the most, a few bugs to work out ). And while some of the FOSS programs are not completely up to par with Microsofts suites (office/visual studio/etc), they still keep up quite well for being, for the most part, hobbies. Few are funded by any major companies, while Microsoft has billions to throw at their devs.
There's millions of Linux users who would gladly pay for games on Linux. No mainstream big publisher has had the balls to dip his toes into the water yet though. That and not having the DX API turns a lot of them off, even though OpenGL can easily keep up with DX.
And gaming is holding back a LOT of people from using it more often. As well, Microsoft will always have the lead on Market share, no matter what. Unless they suddenly crash and burn. They got there first, and got all the OEM's to preinstall Windows on every machine that most people use today. Had Apple wanted to, they could have done the same, and today would of been a radically different world.
