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 missed his point, or at least it appears you did. He is speaking directly about Windows and what its strengths are currently versus the direction Microsoft is trying to take it. Yes, he went through processes on other platforms, mobile and console, because he wanted to expand his product to other markets. That has zero to do with his point however. XBOX was never anything other then what it is. iOS was never anything other then what it is. Windows on the other hand is going a direction he and others dislike and he is making a statement as such.

And Beamer, while there might be some who don't see the difference that you correctly pointed out...that isn't his point either. There is a larger picture that I am very sure you are more then aware of. Please don't pretend you don't, you would have to be completely naive and your posting history does not seem to indicate that you are that blind. This is a step-by-step process MS is taking in the evolution of their OS and people have a problem with the direction because they know where it goes. So do you.
