Timothee Bessett, the id Software developer that was responsible for porting many of id Software's popular games like Doom 3 and Quake 4 to Linux, has resigned from the popular game company.

This is quite sad to see as Timothee was involved with id Software for more than a decade and his first Linux game port for them was Return to Castle Wolfenstein back in 2001. Since 2001 he's largely spearheaded most of id's Linux ports, including Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, Doom 3, Quake 4, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, and Quake Live.

Besset had ported the client and server code and for some of the game launches even managed to ship the Linux support on the same-day as the Windows release. He was also involved with the engine source-code drops that id Software has done under the GPL license when their older id Tech engines no longer carry a commercial value.

Beyond working on the Linux ports, he also worked on the networking code for the id Tech engine. Timothee Besset had also ported some of the id Tech titles to Apple's Mac OS X.
