Regarding FSUIPC, etc...Not that an opinion here will ultimately matter.Ultimately what needs be found out is WHAT the FTC's opinion might be on the matter!In a nutshell, I buy X product, if I wish to use Y et al, products produced to be used with X product, I must pay Z for the privilege.No doubt the above 'hodgepodge' will sound as odd to the FTC as it seems to me.If nothing else, I would like to be a fly on the wall when M$ gets a call from an attorney with the FTC, regarding the above 'hodgepodge, wouldn't you?let's find out...

yes indeed the FTC thought it quite a 'hodgepodge' as well.Filed and forwarded.Next National Fraud Info center,and my state Atty General, Antitrust & Fraud unit...M$, ya shoulda jumped into bed with 'Z' years ago!Now that it's payware, Mr. 'Z' has a 'MONOPOLY' doesn't he, M$ just hates that word, don't ya think?Mr 'Z' will too!IMO...

You have already indirectly paid for the use of Y within the purchase price of product X.Regards.Ernie.

Don't even bother answering them Ernie.Or else you're the next one to have "abused" your loyal customers by changing your product to a commercial one.

If add on Y won't work w/o, 'Z's product, and NOW, due to Z's action, Y is NOW payware it's an anti-trust plus a MONOPOLY case, isn't it?We'll see how the lawyers shake it all out...IMO sue em all, and watch the fun...;o)

1.)I buy a Pick-up Truck (Variable-X)2.)I purchase a camping trailer/fishing boat etc.. (Variable-Y)3.)In order to get Y to function with X I must now purchase a hitch from another vendor (Variable-Z).If I want to get my flight sim to continue to "tow" my add-on's I'll simply need to buy the FSUIPC "hitch". I don't remember seeing any gaurantees anywhere along my 17 year flight sim career that this was going to be a cheap or free hobby. Mike CollierPhoenix, Az
