Carenado ever built... right up until they went exclusively to FSX... and then I stopped completely. I always called myself their biggest fan in years past, but I did not wish to be "herded" into a simulator in which I wasn't 100% happy with yet, just because they were moving forward with the "general" direction of things. I have FSX; it's beautiful and wonderful and the Orbx stuff is outstanding in every aspect... but I can't use it with online weather and AI traffic in metro areas without major stutters. FS9 however, is stunning using today's incredible addons and is liquid smooth.
I will always state firmly that Carenado produces the very best looking GA aircraft available for FS, and at a great price point! I was sad to see them leave FS9. I am so glad they are testing the waters again. There is hope yet.
For those that might might remember... the Elite 2000 Series from Carenado for FS2000 and FS2002.
Please forgive the poor quality of these pictures ~ I didn't know how to take screenshots back then, and I used a digital camera to snap a picture of the monitor screen.

These models were far advanced back in their day. We've certainly come a long way.
