It's all well and good to have a stance until you're in that situation yourself. Notch clearly felt his previous stance wasn't more valuable than a few billion dollars. He even admits that it goes against what he's said in the past. Because it's 2.5 billion dollars. It's not exactly a low key take over. Everyone's entitled to their opinion, I just feel like this has been blown a bit out of proportion. Small time developer sticks to "values" until appropriate level of sucess is reached, then sells and moves on. Doesn't really strike me as odd. Regardless, it remains to be seen if this has any effect on the player (or rather what effect this will take), and until then, I see this as the internet needing another reason to be angry at someone's success because of "ideals". Again, just my personal feeling.

he already had more money than he could possibly know what to do with given what he says his plans allegedly are. hes just a typical swede, no morals.

i don't really care what the internet is doing, i don't involve myself in any way with the community of minecraft outside of this thread. he's a hypocrite and i don't like people who are full of shit. especially swedes.

Fair enough man, I can see your point of view, I just disagree with the extent I guess. Probably says a lot about me, but I'd go back on a lot of my past views in the light of THAT level of security. Yeah, he had millions, I'm sure, but now he has the freedom to do even more. We are talking about "the rest of his life" here, not 4 or 5 years. He can invest, or donate, or whatever he wants for the rest of his life and know he's got security forever no matter if a few things go wrong. I would definitely do the same in his position. Opinions are fun.

if you can piss away hundreds of millions poking away at code on a beach you are a monumental idiot. the amount of money notch had made/would make would be enough to set someone up for generations of complete and total security/luxury.

on a more sober note (so im sorry but this is gonna be a bad post again), his reasoning kinda sounds like a whiney "omg life is so hard with responsibilities and everything I can't cope with this I'll just quit". In my opinion, if your place in society has earned you a shitload of money, you should at least use that money in a way that benefits that society. Instead he decides to keep it to himself to make sure that he doesn't ever have to work again in his life, which is a total dickmove.
