I bought Windows Java Edition and wanted Minecraft on my Mac. Will I get the Mac Java Edition free because I bought the Windows Java Edition, or do I have to buy it?
Since Java edition is linked to your Minecraft account, and there are multiple versions on the site for download, yes. You can get Java edition for free (as long as you log into the Minecraft account that purchased it).
But if the same account is in-play, it will either:
- log the current player out, or
- deny you access.
