The end of an era indeed

Watch out girlfriends and wives, Microsoft Flight Simulator X is looming on the horizon (holiday 2006, if the boys* are lucky). My husband is, of course, quite excited, and waiting for the demo with baited breath.

Today he showed me a "memorial" video for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 (apparently known as Flight Sim 9 in super secret Microsoft Flight Sim language), and I swear there was a tiny tear flowing down his cheek at the end.

Let's just hope the new version is a hit with all these hard core fans.

*yes, I do realize there are women who enjoy flight simulation, but I don't find them to be objects of ridicule, I find them to be objects of grrl power

yes true ...It is rather sad that Flight simulator 2004 is coming to an end, and i can understand ur husbands feelings. I too watched the video and was really close to tears. it is crazy how we get attached to these things.
