I was just checkin out simflight.com and they have news that microsoft is going to be announcing news on FSX after the new years.... Its all exciting and all but what about all the payware you bought??? I know I have spent well over $200 in payware for FS9. Just disappointed cause I am wondering if the payware software and planes will be compatible with FSX...??? :(

i GUARANTEE everything will be compatible.  MS isnt stupid.  When they released CFS3, they learned how dumb they were.  Nothing was compatible, and that was bad.  Certain things may be screwed up, like how props from old 2002 planes dont show, but I am sure they will still work

I have probably $4000 in payware addons for FS9. I figure some will be compatible and some wont be. Some will need reworking by the developers, and some are probably forgotten. If none of them are ompatible, I will continue flying FS9.

I figure I will need a revamped PC within a year or so and at that time I might consider FSX, but for now Im happy with FS9

Cody, yes it is a new OS and if you look at the requirements, you are set to go. You have everything required to run Vista and run it well.

I've just been looking at what it will cost me to upgrade to 64bit (in order to run Vista). Only about $235. Not bad considering the price of a whole new system.

Why?  There is plenty of good freeware.
For that cost, you might as well invest in real-life flight time.
