Yeah but Notch is a bit of a whiney tool of a developer, Minecraft was a fluke hit. There were heaps of similar games prior. It was simply luck that his game gained popularity over others and steamrolled like it did, it could have just as easily been someone else. Since then he simply seems to complain about what every other developer is doing, like it's a crime to try and make money any other way apart from the way he got lucky doing it.
At least that's the impression I get. Everytime I read something he's written he seems to be complaining about something.
