"I love you. All of you. Thank you for turning Minecraft into what it has become, but there are too many of you, and I can’t be responsible for something this big. In one sense, it belongs to Microsoft now. In a much bigger sense, it’s belonged to all of you for a long time, and that will never change.
It’s not about the money. It’s about my sanity.”
~ Markus Alexej Persson aka “Notch”
Notch explains his reasoning for leaving Mojang after the deal with Microsoft. Both sad and inspiring. You will be missed good sir!
