Yeah just bought some new addons for FSX, including majestic Dash 8-Q300, and its flight dynamics are totally awesome... Shows that even FSX can still do.

It's too early to tell. I wasn't bent about what they did but I was disappointed. There's a lot of speculation about things that no one is sure of, and won't be until Flight is released. Folks have taken the hard line one way or the other before really knowing what the intent of Microsoft is. 12 to 18 months ago we weren't sure if MS was ever going to produce another version of Flight Sim again, so if this turns out to be a turkey, I don't know that we've lost anything. Our favorite developers will continue to develop for FSX and FS9. Meanwhile, the hardware continues to catch up to FSX. Does anyone else find it bizarre that just now the hardware is finally catching up to a piece of 6 year old software.

No: FSX was designed at a time when it seemed CPU clock would continue to increase. By the time they finished coding, it was already clear the PC would evolve towards multi-core, but it was too late.With multi-core clock continued to increase, albeit much more slowly, except for the sudden and welcome surge to 5 GHz by Sandy Bridge, some 5 years after FSX was released.Stay tuned for Ivy Bridge and PCIe 3 (with 2x the BW of PCIe 2!).Cheers,- jahman.

Well, that is enough negative vs positive waves for one day, as I have other work to do! Don't kill each other, OK?

I started with atp many years ago. Flight is what it is. Hang on to the world as you have it and be thankful it got as far as it did. I am sorry things did not build from lessons learned.
