    I never thought Microsoft would turn out to be a better owner of an intellectual property than the original indie creator.

    I disagree.
    Explain yourself.

    @Gregozor2121 Microsoft kept the devs at Mojang relatively independent while paving the way for solid new content patches. MC dungeons & world also look quite good — and modded has never been in better shape.

    Notch meanwhile... I don't care if someone spends the rest of their lives on their butt after selling out — but with millions of kids as followers, I don't think you should be tweeting shit like:

    "If you're against the concept of a heterosexual pride day you're a complete fucking cunt and should be shot"

    He's trying too hard to be edgy and bait, and that makes him utterly unfit as a public figure of a game played by kids.

    @bittersweet Markus has made it pretty clear he isn't interested in being a public figure. It would be unfair to say he can't tweet what he wants because he made a game kids happen to enjoy, especially when he hasn't worked on it for like 5 years.

    I believe Microsoft's best contribution is the whole rewrite of the game (in C++ I believe), which has much better performance and came with cross-platform capabilities.

    It was C# because it is microsoft.
    C++ might exist but C# allows them to ship the game on consoles as well.

    I know C++ verson exists
    but there have to be an C# version also. Look at the wiki.

    Bedrock Edition is C++.
    Probably Visual C++ lol

    The PC version of Minecraft is written in Java. And that's the only version with good mod support. Minecraft for other platforms like Xbox and Windows 10 Store are probably C++ 🤷‍♂️

    @olback Java Edition? You mean the 2,581 bytes large version made in 2009 by Mojang for the Java4K contest?


    Bedrock (the unified console/win10 version) is very playable these days. Some small differences in things like redstone mechanics, but very playable, almost on par with Java Edition -- except for mods.

    It is written in C++, not in C#. When it comes to true cross-platform high-performance code, C++ is still king.

    @bittersweet Though a lot of in-depth mechanics differ a lot. I guess the implementation is completely different from the original.

    As someone who loves the intricacies of redstone (scicraft ftw) and technical modpacks, I do indeed use the Java edition.

    But from the perspective of most kids, there's pretty much feature parity, and the gap is closing.

    I'm hoping for a good modding framework for Bedrock, something which is useful and educational for kids as well.

    If I can teach my kids programming by letting them fidget around with a JS modding API for Minecraft Win10 edition, that would be amazing.
