Yes Carmack has changed his tone regarding Linux, but he's still a Linux advocate none the less. Why else would he using it in his own personal time? Or even in his rocket project? I think with the release of this valve box, things might change significantly because Carmack is more influenced by consoles these days than PC's. So therefore, I hope for his sake that he changes heart and comes back to the light before it is too late for id software let alone M$ windows.
