In a recent interview with Joystiq, id Software's John Carmack addressed the recent open beta release ofQuake Live for Windows users, and the importance of getting the browser based shooter up and running for Mac and Linux. id has outsourced the project and Carmack confirmed that Mac and Linux versions are high on the priority list.

Don't worry Mac and Linux gamers: Though the public beta of Quake Live that opened its doors yesterday only supports Windows, id Software's John Carmack tells Joystiq that "it's pretty high on my priority list to have the Mac and Linux support." To that end, an external contractor is working on just that "right now" but Carmack acknowledges that Quake Live compatibility "is going to be a much bigger factor in [the Mac and Linux markets] for people wanting to play the game than it is on the Win32 market where you have so many more options." Carmack was even hopeful that, with enough popularity and some special attention from Apple, the could get "maybe a handful of milliseconds better [on Mac OS] than you can actually get on Windows."
