74. Re: Notch Knocks Win8: Minecraft Certification in Doubt Sep 27, 2012, 17:43 DangerDog
I think most of us are reading this wrong, this form of certification is so that your program doesn't get red flagged by the new security features in windows 8, this is "certification" for the version that runs on your desktop and not a metro version.

"Certify minecraft for win8"?

What does this even mean?

It means Microsoft is trying to do with software what they did with drivers. Starting with Vista x64, the OS would not load device drivers that were not digitally signed by MS (which costs $). Presumably MS wants an OS that won't load software which isn't OK'd by them.


pretty sure it's about this, and I've read that you can turn this new "security feature" off in windows 8 but it'll then nag at you that your system is insecure with some sort of pop-up message.
