Code Monkey

John Carmack, badass extroidenaire, has compared software pattents to mugging someone. Carmack is the guy responsible for the Quakes and the Dooms. Being against software patents, he's also for open source. Actually Quake III is about to be open sourced, just like the two before it. Did you know there's code from the original Quake in Halflife 2? I sure didn't.

This makes me feel a little sick inside. The good thing is that it can be used to run Linux as well. You can read a lot more about it here.
