Notch is a bloody hypocrite...His game is available on the apple appstore and he doesn't seem to have a problem with it. He only seems to have a grudge with windows 8 with next to zero credible evidence to backup his claims. What's even more hilarious is that the game works on windows 8...

Exactly!

His fans like him because he's been good to them. Haters seem to hate him because he's human.

Especially with his poor coding and months of vacation. He's okay, but definitely over-hyped by his user base. Most indie devs are the same way, thinking like they know everything, much like the art students to the science world, and this one was put on a pedestal as if he was a gaming god.

There are good reasons developers don't want to support the locking down of the world's most popular desktop OS.

Except that's not going to happen, especially due to the multitude of programs in the enterprise and business sector that do not and will not go through the marketplace.

Groundless fear-mongering, that's all this is.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, they need to fire Steve Ballmer and then make a Metro style UI but catering to desktop users, think of it like if instead of simply sharing the css (styles) file for their mobile, tablet and desktop webpages, they've instead just made the one web-page with very slight alterations for each platform, so it's good for what they're focusing on but meh for everything else.

I think they do need a new CEO, but at the same time, the point of it all is to bring the desktop like experience to the mobile market. The GUI is not hard to get used to and has little to no bearing on people who have some sort of intuition.

The only times I ever hear someone talking about Notch being a gaming god is when people try to convince his fans he's not.

Yep. Once you know what you are doing, it is fast as heck. The Metro UI also retains all the same functionality of the start menu. It's just called something else now, and instead of appearing in the lower left quadrant of the screen, it is full screen. There's even a new power user menu in Win8. Press Win-X or right click in the lower left corner of the screen.

Pretty sure I'm sticking with Windows 7 for the sole fact I don't want to upgrade, regardless if W8 is good or bad. At a glance I don't like it but it seems to upgrade to too many things I don't a) want, or b) care about.

That being said, lol @ everyone scared of change.

Make sure you check the checksums, early releases are almost always dodgy.
