I'm guessing they are working on it just as much as GOG is working on bringing GOG Galaxy to Linux, which has been 7 years now. Plus, why would we even want DX applications on Linux? There is already Vulkan, there is no reason for DX to even exist at this point. Having DX on Linux doesn't help with gaming. The games would still need to ported and it wouldn't increase the likelihood of it being ported. There are plenty of Vulkan games that are still Windows only.
The only way this ever happens is if the Windows kernel is abandoned and replaced with the Linux kernel. That's really isn't desirable either....there would probably still be proprietary bits that would lock software to only Microsoft's version of Linux.
Microsoft claims to "Love Linux", if that were actually true, the game developers that they recently acquired would still be releasing Linux games.
