Maybe to people who haven't followed id/carmack through the years. That article isn't the big GOTCHA that you think it is, rather it's meaningless. Carmack stated his mind on DX, and that's all it was. Carmack's the Steve Jobs of gaming, so people listen to his musings. Regardless, id+opengl are synonymous. They didn't start out developing games for the 360, but PC, and OpenGL allowed porting to linux and mac. They also release their games source code after a few years go by. I dunno man. You people complain about PC games, and yet you have absolutely no idea what a PC game is, or who pioneered it. Ironic, isn't it?
As long as id stays within their core values, they have a loyal customer here. I don't care what nonsense gets spread about their games, I'll buy them as long as I still enjoy playing them.
