The fact of the matter is......what you see it as, but not only what you see it as, but how you see it as.

Anyone else notice inventory acting wierd? I can't pick up blocks in inventory to craft. Creative inventory is even worse! It won't let me get any items! This is driving me insane!

Wow...Nice! Anyone else think the Thorns enchantment is a bit useless?

No. It's awesome.

I love the fireworks most of all since there are so many different ways to change them around, I like the enchanted books... lots of cool stuff in this update.

The default resolution setting is a nice surprise. Finally I can play with a medium-sized window.

I do not believe in FORCING people into buying a new pc to continue playing a game. Purchasing a new computer is not exactly cheep.

They aren't forcing you to buy a new computer. You only have to get one if you want to be able to play with newer versions that just plain don't work on older computers.
I don't know how to deal with this

Quote me to get me back in the thread!

Seems like my map items got reset to blank, and don't update, even in the same area they were initiated.

Minecraft isn't dropping support for PowerPC... Apple is. You bought a computer in a dying line. Minecraft isn't the only thing that will fail to run on your computer, it's simply the first.

Then stop. It's not your job, you do it for fun. If it's not fun then why are you doing it?
