Good Morning All, I received an email this morning from PCWorld, who had an article published with a title similar to my post. The article can be found here: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2952888/windows/windows-7-holdouts-why-diehard-users-refuse-to-move-to-windows-10.html#tk.nl_pcwbest Given the feedback so far on Windows 10 and the information published in the article, I'd really love to hear from the developers of flight sim software to give some insight into what they think will happen years from now as far as support for legacy OS. For example, if I vehemently refused to install Windows 10 now, given that Microsoft will support Windows 7 (security patches) up to 2020, and I wait until that year, would I be safe in buying and installing new FSX/P3D addons developed over the course of 5 years, or will the developers start changing their coding to suit only the latest OS. Right now, my personal stance on Win10 is to wait a little while until the smoke clears over the issues that are appearing right now. I know there is some pressure in the wings, so to speak, that a year from now, the ability to upgrade for free will disappear. Say I wait after that, meaning that I would have to pay for the OS, and just putt putt along with Windows 7, would it be fair to say that I could still enjoy the newer add-ons to be released. Maybe I am thinking to far ahead, but given the issues that have come up, they don't sound good to me and cause even more headaches to get a given sim to operate correctly. Thank you. -Jim
Hi everybody im new to avsim, the main reason I created this account was to ask this question.....I have a windows 8 dell computer with an i5 and the stock graphics card but that's not the problem because I run fsx perfectly....but I have this weird problem with sp2 that I don't have with sp1. I seem to get better frame rates and no stutters in sp1, but most addons if not all are optimized for sp2 so theres really know other way for me. the main difference is when I put the frame limit to 100, sp1 works perfectly but sp2 theres lag and tear when I pan around the aircraft its so annoying seriously I just don't get it I cant play like that. I definetly know sp2 is causing it no doubt but I just don't know how? if it were for me i'd stay in sp1 but I need sp2 for the addons...if anybody has any ideas, could it be windows 8? please let me know so I can sell my computer and get a vista instead please this is life or death
