View Full Version : Not for me
Pretty much what i thought it would be, and not a flight sim. Already uninstalled it...maybe some point in the future. My FSX is superb with all my addons and continue to spend hours with it. You don't think microsoft will pull the activation codes for FSX or is this an exaggerated fear on my behalf?
Microsoft hasn't dropped activations for any of their products yet (they certainly didn't do it to XP to force people to move to Vista), so why start with FSX? The second they start doing this, users of all of MS products using the activation system will have reason to second guess whether Microsoft is the best vendor to go with. Not a good trend to start.

If you buy the software, you should be able to use it forever. You paid for the right to use it, the only thing I think they could stop is updates. Hell, you can install Windows NT and use it if you want, doesn't mean you'll get support for it though.
Antivirus gets around this by saying you need to buy the yearly product to get virus definition updates....

It comes down to the details of the EULA you agree to when you install the software. If it says you may only use it for a certain length of time, and you agree to it, then that is what you're limited to.
PS - just installed NT 4 in a VM the other day for fun. Thankfully we have moved far beyond it.....
