It was brewing for a while, but now it official Mojang sold out to Microsoft. On the plus side it might mean that they finally start selling Minecraft on Steam. On the minus side we can kiss the Linux version goodbye as soon as they recode it to c++ and drop Opengl.September 15, 2014 at 12:33 pm #71611Venn StoneKeymaster
Eh, I think they will leave it alone for then most part.
Minecraft is part recruiting tool, part getting kids to think of MS as a “cool” company to work for in the future.September 15, 2014 at 3:21 pm #71612__eMpTy__ParticipantSeptember 16, 2014 at 11:34 am #71618linuxgnuruParticipant
c++? nah; they’d redo it all in .NET / C#September 16, 2014 at 1:53 pm #71619
Yeah they would so then it wouldn’t run in Linux no matter how we tried……..Mono may be a replacement but not a replica……September 16, 2014 at 1:54 pm #71620
Venn is right the non hipest group in the world just bought the hipest game in the world……. Look at the age range that plays with Minecraft… somewhere from 5+ to 60+ in age ………September 17, 2014 at 11:15 am #71626linuxgnuruParticipant
My star trek minecraft server already has an insengence plan…September 17, 2014 at 12:13 pm #71630
That just means that Bukkit somehow got to microsoft………they have been trying to work closely with Mojang to create a plugable mod system that wouldn’t break after every update.September 19, 2014 at 12:22 am #71648
Oh I found the reason https://storify.com/lukegb/the-tale-of- … ecraft-1-8 . It does belong to Mojang. So Mojang has taken Possesion of Bukkit of which they had bought over 2 years ago. Gonna be interesting to see if it get’s put back out to the community to keep it developing or just bring it in house and add it to the mainstream code.
