SteamBox uses Linux, how will that work out?

Okay the problem I am seeing is with the Linux itself. How many games are available in Linux now? Very very few compared to Windows which every developer supports. Even if Developers slowly move to Linux, steambox will still make the current massive crop of windows games unplayable. Majority of the games use Direct X, which is a Microsoft API instead of Linux's Open GL API. How are they gonna work around that? Or am I wrong here? I am so confused with the inclusion of Linux.
