Minecraft creator disses Windows 8 again, after Microsoft asked Notch to help certify Minecraft for Windows 8

Minecraft developer, 'Notch', would rather have Minecraft not work on Windows 8

We know that Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson isn't too happy with Windows 8, but in the last few weeks the developer was asked by Microsoft if he wanted him certifying Minecraft for Windows 8.

He declined, telling the company to instead stop trying to ruin the PC as an open platform. That wasn't all, either - Notch also took to Twitter to say that he'd rather have Minecraft not work on Windows 8 at all, than to play along with Microsoft.

 

Notch hopes that he can swing the decisions of others too, swaying users from Windows 8. I personally will only be moving because I'm a tech junkie, and I want to test it out - but I have absolutely no plans to push my multiple systems to the new OS. I wouldn't mind buying a new Windows 8-based Ultrabook, but that's completely different.
