Markus Persson (Notch) is not part of making minecraft anymore
It's possible to play minecraft for free, but you can't save
Thanks for this post - it clears some things up for me.
1 - the price difference. I knew the price would increase when it went out of the testing phase
2 - the numbering change. A while back, an update was expected to be 2.9, or some such, and instead, it was 1.0. I thought perhaps this was the "full version" that everyone was waiting for, but my kids didn't know (they don't worry about such things, they just play the game!) I'm a good parent, and don't go embarrassing my kids more than I can help. I stay on DS's server, and behave myself, rather than scare people by invading other servers!
