Default Re: Microsoft Flight to be released this spring as a FREE download

I've not been watching to close but seems a good portion of the flight sim community is moving from FSX not to Flight but Prepar3D, which is the old FSX code that Lockheed Martin bought to continue development as a professional simulation engine. LM has been cleaning up the code and adding new features, so it seems things like stuttering are gone and performance is up, plus most all of the FSX addons such as aircraft and scenery go in with little effort. Doesn't look as though Flight is being embraced by the FS community at all.
