Isn't that the guy who sold nexuiz out to illfonic?
Valve had better make Steam and/or Source open source.
Valve better hurry up with hl2ep3/hl3, whatever it's going to be. Although a real native (non wine) linux release of the previous episodes would also be awesome.
His overall stance seems to have been that of trying to see the best in this comercialization of Nexuiz and got even hired by them to work on the open-source engine (before it was decided that they would switch to the Cryengine). That he seems to be fed up with them and switched to Valve speaks for him I guess, but I would have loved to see some more work on the Darkplaces engine by him too.
But I guess this is a good match as the source engine is supposed to be quite quake like still, so it's similar to Darkplaces... maybe they will even allow for some backporting and open-sourcing of code *keeps kingers crossed*

On a USB stick to share with my friends.
I still predict problems. I don't see the performance of the drivers/games matching the performance of their Windows siblings any time soon. I hope we'll gradually get there over time, but it'll be a rocky road.
Linux is worse than Windows when it comes to gaming performance.
