Microsoft buying ‘Minecraft’ isn’t as crazy as it sounds

Microsoft is close to buying the developers of Minecraft? The same Minecraft that has sold over 50 million copies, created by the outspoken Markus Notch Persson? The same Notch that accused Microsoft of trying to ruin the PC as an open platform with Windows 8? Who said hed rather have Minecraft not run on Windows 8 at all than put it in the Windows Store?
