I honestly don't think anyone will notice a huge change. It's not like Notch has been the one and only creative input on the game, and they've already been working together on Minecraft for over a year. Notch has already said he isn't leaving Minecraft, he's just stepping down as Lead Creative. Notch gave us Minecraft and for that I'm thankful. Jeb, I'm sure, will continue his already excellent work.
Actually it's the opposite. Notch promised Jens that HE (Notch) would not pull rank. IOW, he won't be all, "I don't care. I wrote this game and I sign your paycheck. Make those mushroom cows PURPLE!"
I think this is a great development for Minecraft. Jens has been integral to the game for the past 6 months or so and has had a very large hand in what the game is today. Having an even bigger hand in where it's going is good.
Considering that Notch wants to expand Mojang, and make more than just one game, this is a good move. Notch is great, Jeb is great. Notch has a million things on his plate, Jeb for the most part only has to focus on Minecraft. This is a great move. I am very excited for all the new things that Minecraft will have.

I use the FTB modpack, because it's fun, and extremely convenient.
