I got bored and decided to install FS2000. Wow, it ran so fast and even though the graphics weren't nearly as good as FSX I enjoyed it just because it ran fast. Haha, just thought I would share this. Anyone who is sick of FSX running slow as hell, go for FS2000 or even FS2004 again until a later time.
Ha, I was going to install FS2000 the other day just for kicks and to compare it to FSX. But I didn't...maybe I will now...

EDIT: I just remembered when I first installed FS2000 back when I got it on our 240MHZ POS (I think it was a winChips or some knockoff brand of intel....). It ran like crap and took a good 10 minutes to load the game. Good times.
