Poll: Did MS Alienate Customers?

ms_masthead_ltrSince Microsoft abandoned Flight Simulator many people ‘declared’ they would no longer support the Redmond giant. FS was the only reason they were buying MS products (read: operating systems) anyway and that reason now had disappeared. Obviously many people, especially in communities like ours, were extremely disappointed. But to what extent did the recent unfortunate events in Redmond REALLY change your behaviour towards Microsoft? Let us know in the poll (see right-hand column).
By the way, you can also still show your support for FS via our Facebook group here !

I am new to FSX and just bought it a couple of weeks ago. I had a hell of a time installing it with Error 1935 ( some junk error) , researched it tried fsutil commands but failed.

OK. Flightsim, I abandon thee! Microsoft made a decision that doesn’t actually affect me, so I’m going to give up flight simming and all the hundreds (possibly thousands over the years)of dollars I have invested in it with add ons and hardware upgrades to go and buy a product that I feel is totally inferior in every way. I had X-Plane once and sent it back. It was awful…. in my opinion. They have a very long way to go before they even get near FS. I, like many others have been around flightsim since it was a green, wire… Read more »

See that’s what I mean Francis, you figure your the only one who has any passion or tie to flightsimming. I’ve logged thousands of hours of flightsim time dating back to SubLogic’s ATP and through FS98, 2000, 2002, 2004 and a bit of X and a tiny bit of X Plane. I work, raise a family and still find time to fly almost daily. You don’t think thousands of users are concerned about where the evolution of flightsim is headed? But good grief, there’s tons of other potential developers who have contributed aircraft, sceneries, utilities, even other versions of flightsims… Read more »
