I was wondering about the motivation for such a gargantuan task. You probably like the challenge and the way you're going you might just get there. I'll be the first in line to score a signed copy
I'm so fed up with Microsoft atm that I've been ogling X-Plane
more and more lately. Obviously, it's a very small community compared to that of MSFS and making the switch would probably result in disappointment in several ways. Just like switching Cuban cigars for those made in Russia or Russian Vodka for Vodka made in Cuba... you know what I mean.
...but just the fact that you can run X-Plane on an Apple makes me lick my chops. I'm not bashing MS... but think about it:
In order to run FSX at full capacity, you require DX10. In order to run DX10, you require Vista. In order to run Vista, you need a new computer. Remember Apple's anti-MS ads when Vista was first released? It pretty much summed it up.
Now, does anyone really believe that MS wants us to build our own rigs??? No, no, no!!! They want us to BUY pre-fabricated rubbish...
Now, which of the brand computers on the market actually meets all the requirements for FSX PLUS the ability to make at least minor upgrades in the future? None.
Sorry about the rant... just caught myself in free fall there... but hey, you gotta criticize MS occasionally otherwise those sanctimonious b
s get too complacent.
