Flight Simulator is profitable
FS is not profitable, by itself. You yourself has said the money is in the addon business. Developers were not and are not willing to share their profits with MS and why should they? So which is greedier? No the FLIGHT people just coudn't produce addons in a fashion to please the market. cockpitless aircraft, aircraft the public would buy etc. I had no dought it was doomed when they released it early, they did too.
