Submission + - Linux OS specific to gaming?

An anonymous reader writes: Now that Dell has a (supposed) plan to get Linux onto a more mainstream market, I find myself wondering again on when I'll be completely free of the shackles put on by Microsoft. However, the one huge hurdle that still binds me to its chains is games. I've already looked into WINE and, although it seems to have made a lot of progress so far, the range of games being supported still seems to be limited. Is there any other Linux or Linux supported software being developed specifically focused on supporting gaming?
