FSX and FS2002 for me, some of us long term customers never bothered with the minor bug-fix that was FS9 :(

Normally I am exclusively FS9.... except I use FSX to fly the MD-11. Once the FS9 version comes out I will predominantly return to FS9 but no doubt I will continue to dabble with FSX.

I would say 90% FS9, 1% FSX...and remaining 9%? To install, uninstall, format, reinstall FSX trying to find the best performance.

This proves what I have always known to be true that FS9 is still alive and well and developers would be wise not to abandon it.Michael P.

FS9. I bought FSX when it first came out, but I have so much invested in scenery etc. in FS9 that I use it all the time.Sean

That explains why I use FSX for the most part. My prior investment was lost in a system failure that also corrupted by backup image, so faced with having to reinvest I am sticking to FSX except for the 737NG which I use for sidstar procedure testing and of course beta testing the MD11 in FS9. I like having a load manger that talks to the airplane and there is also the advanced animations, cockpit lighting variations, etc. As far complaints go, I was happy flying the 747 in FSX with my old system (P4 2Gb mem and 256Mb video) but I agree it wasn't great. My biggest beef is with both FS9 and FSX having such a horrible weather generator... OMG, there is no excuse for the lack of progress in this area since FS98.

Agree re the weather engine. I won't be purchasing FS11 unless the weather is given a major re-work.With advanced airports, aircraft, Active Sky maxed out and Ultimate Terrain, I can bring FS9 almost to it's knees. With FSX on my current rig, I am forced to reduce the sliders so that the scenery looks worse than FS2002. I have no real desire to upgrade the computer just to run FSX. If I was going to spend that sort of money, I'd rather invest in a cheap PC and monitors and use a small network to run Project Magenta.

FS9 until there comes another MFS version that will bring the breaking changes I hope for. And it is not FSX.Plus, like many others here, I have a bag full of FS9 addons which make it almost a perfect sim.Best regards,Rafal

Can you tell us you're results in testing the FS9 person, do you feel that it is close to ready?Michael P.

Best in a separate thread so Vin can get his survey; however, the progress over the past couple days has been significant and we are all hoping to start B4 very soon then a RC (release candidate).

FS9 but I did re-install FSX since I bought the MD11 and wanted to have a peek at what to expect when it arrives for FS9.Krister

FSX for me.It used to be only FS9, but once I actually spent some time with FSX, I can't see myself ever going back to FS9 for personal use.

What is Beta 4? is that the final check to make sure everything works well?Michael P.

I only have laptops so it is FS9 for me. An ACER Ferrari with Igb RAM and only 128Mb of video memory runs FS9 and addons like PMDG's 747, VOZ 1.7 and Flight Environment for the weather beautifully even with 80% traffic enabled.Gerry

I was so excited to get FSX, but after seeing the horrible performance I quickly came to the realization that I just don't have enough computer to run it and looking ad the specs, I realized the price of admission will be at least $3000.Michael P.

Much less than $3000. I put together a system for less than $2000: Q9650 quad 3MHz ASUS Rampage Formula mobo, 4GHz Corsair DDR2 memory, 750W Corsair pwr supply, ATI4870 512MB video, 10,000rpm 300GB Raptor harddrive plus second 1TB harddrive and also got a new case and a couple of optical drives. I did spend more than that so I could have a new OS and Office suite, but the hardware from newegg was less than expected. Now, most of us don't have an extra $2000 either but at least be fair with your excuse.
