“A lot of this project was about doing something that the PC was going to be better at than the consoles,” he said.
“Our modern triple-A stuff has to be somewhat more console-centric, with the PC as a peer, while this is an opportunity to do something where the PC will really stand alone.”
So up yours, consoles. Not only will you not have anything to do with Quake Live’s free-to-play action, but id’s going to support Mac and Linux with the game, in the name of God.
Carmack told Joystiq today that “it’s pretty high on my priority list to have the Mac and Linux support.”
John Carmack spits on you, PS360. He spits in your face.

Around 10,000 users are constantly in line to register for the game.
The latest incarnation of id’s classic FPS looks as though it may well “work”.
Good luck if you’re trying to get involved.

The Quake Live beta is now open, meaning anyone can play completely gratis. Hit this to get involved.
The free-to-play shooter includes 40 arenas, five play modes and tons of other stuff. It’d be very rude to not give it a go.

According to CVG, id’s John Carmack is mulling over a Quake Live premium service.
Quake Live has always previously been discussed as free to play.
His comments will appear in the next issue of PC Zone and read thus:
In the beginning Quake Live will be completely ad-supported, it’s not out of the question that eventually we’ll have some kind of a premium service. But we don’t know what it’s going to be yet, and we’re certainly going out with the completely free-to-play model. As the community grows and we start seeing what people actually want to get out of it we may offer some other things there.
So completely free with paid for content. Right.

According to this Shacknews piece, id revealed at QuakeCon today that the firm was forced to change the name of upcoming free-to-play shooter Quake Live from the original Quake Zero because of a domain squatter.
Apparently the company announced the game without registering the domain. Sensible.
“This was an idea we had mere weeks before QuakeCon ,” said Carmack, emphasizing the speedy nature of the game’s confirmation.
An enterprising individual captialised on id’s lack of plan, but Carmack was having none of it.
“They offered us a considered buyout option for it,” he said. “We just decided heck, we’re only a few months into development of this, we’ll just change the name.”
