It has been a long while since we had a voxel engine and hardware has come a long way. Maybe we should get an opinion from Ken Silverman and not Notch.

News Comments > Minecraft Sells 2.5M, Notch Interview
15. Re: Minecraft Sells 2.5M, Notch Interview Jun 14, 2011, 18:25 UnderLord
 
I bought it because it is an open-ended game with the option to avoid combat and concentrate on building.
Changing it to what the proven market don't want is crazy.
What next, how to win in Second Life?
Still, I hear the source code is to be released (to selected parties, but how long can you keep the genie in the bottle?), someone will be smart enough to make a clone with the original gameplay if Notch isn't.

Tell that to all the 64-bit Vista and Windows 7 users where 64-bit IE9 runs like a dog!

I note that a comment on that page links to an article on Sharkbait and that halfway down that page is a response from one 'walterego', small world!

I really hope China cracks down on people ripping off Windows... so that they all become good law-abiding Linux users!.
Microsoft allows Windows piracy in China expressly to keep other OS adoption down - Pirates: Good for Microsoft, great for open sourcers

Whatever. People just don't want 3D TV - World+Dog says 'no thanks' to 3D TV

Edit -
If anyone cares, there is a reason LCD prices came down lately Flatscreen makers fined 649m for price fixing

I suspect that pricing might have more to do with the increased uptake of LCDs over time than the capabilities.

Maybe they also realise they'll have to merge to compete with AMD/ATI's APU. Now THAT would be news!

That's the best description I've read. You have to use your imagination a bit and want to create things and explore.


Well that explains why so many Second Life people get into it straight away then. :-)

1. Re: Micron Launches New 25nm Flash Memory Chip Dec 5, 2010, 01:20 UnderLord
 
"Eventually, all nanotechnology has to face its limits, and Micron and others have said that NAND flash processing will be approaching that wall in about five years"

BS! Multi-level cells are way less reliable stan sing;e-level storage cells and reducing the maximum number of electrons by using smaller feature sizes makes it worse.
So much so that ClearNand has to use ECC just to pass muster.
I think I'll be skipping high-density MLC products thanks.

I'm really no fan at all of free-codecs.com and don't appreciate being directed to them instead of directly to the source companies.
I presume there's dollars involved, but I really do detest them as yet another useless middleman outfit adding nothing of value to the user.
Just so you know.

He does say in the article "...what I call Digital Restriction Measures..." so I think he is just setting the tone at the start.
