I started playing the first MSFS on an old Compaq Portable PC in the mid 80's(It was as big as a small suitcase with a small monochrome green screen and it weighed a ton.) I progressed through all of the MSFS sims up to FSXSE. I first started with X-plane at X-Plane 7. I left X-plane and flew FS9 and then FSX until I tried X-Plane 11 for the first time. I have since erased FSX and now fly XP11 exclusively. It is hands down the best sim. I know it has a few quirks, but it's worth it.
