Agree. Underwhelmed but still, care factor is low due to it still being in alpha and all. I couldn't really differentiate between anything but snow, desert and temperate. There appears to be no rhyme or reason, but then I'm comparing it to biomes in dwarf fortress which are realistically generated as part of a larger overall world map, much more finite than that of Minecraft.
It'll still be cool to have a greater mixture of land types in game.
