Possible future of Linux gaming?

Now this looks interesting Gaikai is still in closed Beta stages

QuoteGaikai is a cloud-based gaming technology that allows users to play major PC and console games like Call Of Duty or World Of Warcraft instantly, with one click. No download or install required.
"Potentially one of the biggest announcements to come out of this or any year's E3" Steven BurnsNowGamer

This technology powers a next-generation video game advertising network that drives sales for video game publishers, developers, retailers, and affiliates via online demos of games and software applications. Users are presented with an offer to try the game or app before buying it, therefore giving them hands-on experience with the product right at the point-of-sale.
Instant access

Gaikai is driven by a simple mission: make as many games available to as many people on as many devices as possible, easily and instantly.

* Gaikai requires nothing more than a standard web browser with ubiquitous plugins like Flash or Java
* Gaikai requires no special hardware or extra computing power. Rather, it can run premium 3D games on something as lightweight as a netbook or smartphone.
* There's nothing to download or install -- games are instantly playable with a single click
