Microsoft won't come out with FS2006 until next summer in 2006.
Here's the article, second one down:

It is certainly for the best. I like microsoft's products when they choose to take their time, so this does bring joy to my heart. Also, the technology doesn't even seem to exist to the average consumer that can run FS9 fully laden in all of the graphics settings, so no rush to go improving them. This certainly offers us more time though to enjoy the new PMDG/PSS/LevelD products on their way!

No, it's alright. it's good to see that you care about us 🙂 . Anyway there are still people out there who still may not know. So you have nothing to be sorry about.

Thnx SamIntel ! Regardless, things move fast here and I didn't see the other post mentioned, but now I have seen yours ! Thnx !! rob P.S. I too am not anxious as I am happy with my present rig. And a new FS will change all that... and I'll be $pending again in that futile effort to keep 'em flying "As Real As It Gets !" %#$@&*^%$# rob

That's okay, I clicked here and I was the originator of the other thread, LOL! Anyway, it seems a couple of people in this thread were surprised so it doesn't hurt that it's not brand new news. The thing that gets me about Just Flight's announcement, however, is that they stand to profit from saying such a thing, not Microsoft, which makes the whole thing circumspect. They may even have to make a retraction.

Not really a big deal for me. FS2004 has so many add-ons and such that FS2006, when first released, couldn't even keep up with FS2004. THe only thing I am looking for is updated graphics, the add-ons will take care of themselves.
