Curious...when did YOU buy into the XP franchise?

Recommended Posts

For myself, it was XP v6.0

 

Just came off a flight between San Diego, and San Francisco.  XP 10.35rc1, is the smoothest flight sim platform running on my system.  Dead smooth screen animation, mostly keeping at my locked 33 FPS.  So very, very satisfied with the XP 'experience'.

 

So...when did YOU, get on board?

I started with XP2, when it was priced around $500 (used a demo only... ) if my memory is not failling... One day Austin announce X-Rotor, but soon after decided to merge both sims :-)


Flight Simulation is the Virtual Materialization of a Dream...

Uninstalling flightsims is a Temptation I can never resist...

I'm a "newbie" XP'er, starting only when the Sim was introduced for Steam. Bought it at the introductory price, and now I'm waiting on IXEG to release their 737, before I spend some quality time with the sim.

When the Aces Game Studio team were let go way back when, I wanted to go with a flight simulator with a future. X-Plane has done pretty well since then and I look forward to future improvements. I thought it was great that the sim could be used by pc, mac and linux platforms. The jump to 64-bit was forward looking.

I am interested to see how the PMDG involvement proceeds and the quality of their products in XP-10. I suspect there will be other companies interested in products for the growing community of users.

I want to say I started with XP 7 but left it pretty quickly. I came back for XPX. I find myself using it more and more. If more addon developers come on board it could be great. We need better AI and eventually ATC.

X-Plane 10 was my first from LR. Switched sides 3 years ago.

My first sim was Sublogic Flight Simulator 1 on Atari ST back in the old days. After that MS Flight Simulator all versions, untill I gave up on FSX. Never looked back.

X-Plane 8 ... when they started to support Linux (and that was the time, when I ultimately ditched Windows and with it MSFS ... and moved to Linux full time).

For me it was with X-plane 9. Don't really remember how I stumbled upon it. Probably thanks to AVSIM(?) as I've been a long-time lurker. I know I really didn't like it at first when all aircraft felt so darned twitchy and unruly. Back then I hadn't gone full mental on buying stuff for flight simulation so X-plane 9 ended up on the shelf. 

 

Then I started seeing news about X-plane 10. It looked awesome. Ordered it from the US the moment it was released. Not long after that I started to develop the "buy-addon-sickness". Now I am beyond rescue. I now use P3D-XP-FSX and the hangar keeps growing... =) 

 

Oh, and yes. Nowadays I really like X-plane... ;)

For me it was X-Plane 9, tried it for about 2 weeks then hit the delete button, then when X-Plane 10 came along I gave it another try and the moment I experienced the night, dusk/dawn lightings I had that wow!! moment, this time I hit the delete button on FSX due to my frustration with constance OOMs.

I also started with XP9, but didn't like it. Truth be told, I really didn't give it much of a chance. It didn't wow me, so I went back to FSX.

 

When XP10 came out, I gave it another chance and bought my first payware plane for XP. After that I was hooked.  Still played FSX once in a while and bought P3d as well, but most of my time was spent in XP10.  About a year ago, I deleted FSX & P3d since I wasn't using them anymore.
