So why did Notch decide to hand over MC to Jeb?

Is it because Notch is a lazy jerk who only programmed Minecraft for the money?

Is it because Minecraft was getting in the way of his vacation because he never ever worked on Minecraft?

Is it because Notch is Satan-spawn and often can be found pitchforking little children and drinking their blood?!

HOW ABOUT BECAUSE NOTCH IS ROBBLE ROBBLE DA ROBBLE ROBBLE ROBBLE ROBBLEE?!!

I say it's because he has A.D.D and wants to work on something else. It just clearly shows in Minecraft, they add a new feature yet leave the majority of other features unfinished. IMO they should higher a bunch of developers and actually finish some of these things up.

Disregarding that this was a joke topic making fun of unusually harsh Notch bashers, I don't think Notch ever intended Minecraft to be such a full game. He's an indie developer and doesn't seem to enjoy committing himself to his magnum opus.

I know that this is a toke jopic, but who cares why he did it?

All that matters is that he handed it over to Jeb, who is clearly the more competent (in both programming and game design) of the two.

When he was a poor nobody, he worked his ass off to make money. Now he is a millionaire, he hires people to work their ass off to make him money. Basically, he is a gentleman now.
