You have to be careful when taking advice from Garry Newman he'll make you waste your 2 billion on....

I do understand the concerns about MS buying Mojang as we don't want them screwing with “our friends electric”.

Didn't think there would be any reason to defend Notch, I'd sell it too.
Notch hasn't even been evolved that much of Minecraft since years back.

Considering the circumstances I'd be surprised if someone wouldn't sell Minecraft to Microsoft if they were in the same position as he was.

I would have sold for 1.5 billion on a heart beat , without hesitation and I don't fault Notch .

I doubt there is anyone here that would say no if MS was willing to pay $2.5 bln for anything they own and were looking to sell like Notch was.
