Why would anyone write decent drivers for GNU/Linux when there are few 3d games for it? A chicken and the egg problem, me thinks

Games aren't the only thing that requires 3D, as others have said, Maya, Softimage, etc all have Linux versions as well. Not to mention a lot of scientific uses for 3D imagery (astronomy programs as one example)
