Adrian Carmack was the lead artist of id Software until he left the company in 2005. It was reported that he left the company to pursue his passion in art, but it was later revealed that he got fired from id and was suing the company. Does anybody know the outcome of the lawsuit? Has it been resolved? And where on earth is Adrian Carmack now? 
I'm just curious.

It seems nobody knows...tho I like the short description about the guy, especially the ending.
"  The outcome of the lawsuit is never revealed and both id Software and Activision has been quiet about it ever since.
Adrian Carmack's whereabout is unknown."

His page on GiantBomb suggests there is no relation between the two Carmacks.

Like Roberta and Ken Williams he has disappered from the gaming community, never to be heard from again.

I was wondering this too :(
@Gabriel: Roberta and Ken disappearing is probably for the best.
