Thief Source Code Recovered?

The petition for Thief 1&2 source publication is a lengthy forum thread where users implore Eidos to release the source code to the first two installments in the beloved Thief series of stealth games. A recent post there has an unconfirmed report that the Thief source code has been found after being presumed lost. This does not mean the source is any closer to release, but if the report is accurate, it does mean it is at least possible. Here's word: "Community member tracks down some former LGS developers. One of these developers finds that they have the source code backed up. The code is then handed over to Eidos....which brings us to present day....still nothing."

Can you even get Thief 2 to run on modern PCs without jumping through hoops?

Tafferpatcher will install the game and all the fixes you could ever want. Works great on Win7 x64 for me.

As for fan missions, there's a nice thread here.
