I'd be interested in hearing/seeing anything about DOOM3.

The game is supposed to be released for the Mac plaform according to Carmack, I'm curious to see if there isn't some presence from id there. I mean given that the G5's will pretty much smoke most of the PC's out there and with new ones on the way, you'd think they would be interested.

Carmack has always been pretty friendly with the Mac community, although they are releasing DOOM3 for XBox. Well business is business I guess eh?
