I was trying to perform an analysis as to why I am enjoying flying FS2000 and it came to me. I have been away from FS2000 for a long while while enjoying fs9 and occasionally fsx. When I last flew aircraft in FS2000 I did not know what I was doing much of the time as I was learning FS2000 and was new to the FS community. At that time, almost anything to do with FS was exciting although continually frustrating. Now, I am enjoying FS2000 becuase I have learned much from using the other two programs. I can actually do what I had set out to do when I first downloaded FS2000 on the computer I had at the time. FS2000 can be fun and rewarding even though there are certainly aspects in fs9 that contribute to making the experience even better. I was busy enhancing a FS2000 MD-90 panel this evening and it occured to me that I was doing things with it that I could have never done back when I first started. I think of the hundreds of hours spent flying various fs9 aircraft and realize how much that experience is lending to my current enjoyment of FS2000. I would like to know if there are others out there who are flying FS2000 yet and finding it a relaxing, fun, experience.
