Doom 3: Open sourced?

Here's a interesting article from Frans Englich "What if Doom 3 were open sourced?". He ponders on the possibility of ID software releasing its latest offering Doom 3 (also being touted as the most advanced game in the world !) to open source.


Not that its not done this before. Quakeforge is a good example of Quake coming to KDE. The author makes a valid point with about ID being one of the few companies who still retains the original passion for the craft itself despite being market leaders.


Personally, i am already waiting for my copy of Doom 3 - and if its open source - the source :)
