Notch is quite a hypocrite here.

He got Minecraft certified for "open" Android
He got Minecraft cerfitied for Xbox
Minecraft still works perfectly as-is in its current form on Windows 8.

So Microsoft comes along and wants to certify it also to go through the Windows 8 Store, especially so it can go onto ARM tablets, and he throws a hissy-fit?


You are completely missing the point entirely. He didn't certify for Android or iOS or the Xbox. That is the only method of distribution on those platforms. What he is saying is he doesn't like that a previously open platform is closing itself off. He isn't being hypocritical at all by not wanting to play along with the locking down of the PC. Microsoft probably wants to turn the Windows 8 store in to something resembling the mobile app stores and XBox Live.
