More DOOM 3 for Mac Tidbits

LinuxGames has posted a new interview with Timothee Besset, the programmer at id Software in charge of maintaining the linux port. While the focus of the interview is understandably on the upcoming Linux version of Doom 3, a few pieces of information regarding the Mac port do manage to slip through as well.

When discussing the OpenGL drivers, Besset notes that a Mac running Doom using an ATI card is "running fine." In addition, when asked about the status of a dedicated server, he notes that the Mac port is still a priority:

I know that the server admins are waiting, and Linux gamers don't really care about it, but we have to follow our priorities. Since gold, the Mac port was definitely the big thing; it benefits both the Linux and the Mac version, but Mac had to come first.
As reported in the past, the Mac version of Doom 3 is currently without an official publisher. As always, we'll keep tabs on the situation and report information as we get it.
