That, William, is to me the strongest argument agains leaving the freeware community out of the game. Freeware was an undeniable moving force in flight simulation, with the best creators pushing the envelope and some of their ideas being adopted or implemented in the sim’s next version.

i will continue to use fsx…if microsoft thinks flight is i-tunes not a good idea…most emprovements came from external developers and excluding them is a bad bad idea.

Is MS Flight a testbed platform for Microsoft for their next complete global simulation release to follow FSX?

I understand the MSFlight product concept and it’s lowered scope of realism, terrain, and detail coverage. I hope Microsoft does not depart from pursuing a next step to the Flight Simulator X as a comprehensive simulation.

Based on what I’ve seen and heard athat is probably a good idea.

I personally will not be buying Microsoft Flight. I will stick to FS9, then install my copy of FSX after a computer upgrade, or perhaps try Xplane 10.
