There is no limited number of seeds. Its just a matter of finding them.
And it will take out the fun of having to search for a good biome.

*want. There's at least 4 billion possible seeds. So yeah, there's that many.

Because the game doesn't have to hold your hand for a bit and spawn you in your biome of choice. It's programming time that Mojang doesn't need to and won't go through. Find a seed with the biome you want to spawn in, there's the solution. This has been suggested many times.
Hey, you there. Yes, you! Are you thinking about posting a suggestion on the forums anytime soon? If so, please read this before doing so.

There is a digit limit, so there is a limit to how many seeds there are.

Yeah, but there's such a large amount of numbers in a seed, and every number has 10 possibilities: 0-9. So it's practically unlimited. Say, if there's 15 digits max (don't know the exact amount), you can have 10^15 seeds. Then, you can also have a minus in front of it, so that's (10^15)x2= an insane amount...

Or am I missing something in this calculation?

Why not use the already implemented seed function instead?

but still, there isn't unlimited.

You can acomplish this by using seeds. Simply type in "-any biome- seed" and it will come up with hundreds of seeds.

1: Quite a lot. Hard to find a SPECIFIC seed with what you want, if you want to just spawn in a specific biome then seeds usually can find a seed with that biome.

2a: Buy iPhone 4S or iPhone 5
2b: Siri, search "List of minecraft seeds by biome"
2c: ?????
2d: Profit!
If you can't afford an iPhone 4S or 5, then just use.. well... google!
