Notch has some fightin' words for Microsoft about Windows 8. Whatcha guys think, Windows 8 the beginning of the end for PC gaming?
Got an email from microsoft, wanting to help "certify" minecraft for win 8. I told them to stop trying to ruin the pc as an open platform.— Markus Persson (@notch) September 27, 2012

I really like him and his idea, but i'm not sure if that will be successfull. Microsoft won't stop the release just because of Minecraft not being supported by Win8.
Oh, no, it's not a matter of not releasing Windows 8, it's their whole built-in store and the way they divide up programs. Kotaku did a great write-up about it. For instance, because Mass Effect 3 runs through Origin, you'll only see that game listed in the normal Windows style page we're used to. But on the Metro side (which matches up with Xbox Live) it'll show your friends playing the 360 version and it will act like the PC version doesn't exist. It's sloppy.
