could someone please give me the lowdown on some of the other fs programs mentioned here...e.g. fs5, fs9, etc. sorry for such a stupid question but i'm not aware of the "history" of flight simming and the ton of software out there...all i have known is fs2000 and fs2002. what's the next best sim program to fly?
