Notch Knocks Win8: Minecraft Certification in Doubt

A tweet by Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson relates an exchange with Microsoft about Windows 8 and the indie sandbox game: "Got an email from microsoft, wanting to help 'certify' minecraft for win 8. I told them to stop trying to ruin the pc as an open platform." He follows this expressing his distaste for the process and the new OS: "I'd rather have minecraft not run on win 8 at all than to play along. Maybe we can convince a few people not to switch to win 8 that way.." Thanks Computer and Video Games.

After all the bad press I've heard about Windows 8, I see another Windows ME coming. I fell for that garbage back in 2000. Not this time around. The way Microsoft works, it seems like every other OS release is good, then garbage.
Windows 3.0 - Turd Bucket
Windows 3.11- Great
Windows 95 - Ton of problems, so Turd Bucket
Windows 98 - Great
Windows ME - Turd bucket
Windows XP/2000 - Great
Windows Vista - Turd Bucket
Windows 7 - Great
Windows 8 - Turd Bucket
So we go bad good bad good bad etc... If you don't see a pattern here, your blind.

Sounds like all Windows 8 is good for, as it's going to be for, is mobile/tablet platforms. I think it's just being made for the Surface and some suit decided to give it the Windows 8 name. The should have named it Windows Surface OS or something like they did for Windows CE.

Don't destroy the desktop MS. There are still some us who prefer to have a PC on their desk that doesn't take batteries.
