Can't say I'm surprised.

You may not be shocked.... I am blown away by this....
What a colossal waste of time and money.... Deeply disappointed to see such a misguided effort by MS... They haven't had it "right" since FS2004...
I am shaking my head.
If we could only get the other entity out here to make the transition from FS to his platform "painless".....
Sheesh.. I rarely comment on things like this but... Cannot help myself here.

Hopefully LM will continue with P3D multi-core development...
but the more I look at other sims, the more I appreciate FSX.

When I heard that MS where working on flight, I thought to myself at the time that it would be a big waste of money. Seems its proven now.

For me I am still using fs9.
