Microsoft Posts FSX Service Packs on Avsim

This was a downright surprise. Microsoft Corporation posted both FSX Service Pack 1 AND 2 in the Avsim File Library!

Both service packs are available on Avsim

While I fully welcome the decision, this action makes me wonder a few things:

  1. Is Microsoft about to terminate the FSX product site?
  2. Despite trying Microsoft trying to exit the desktop simulation market, do they realize just  how popular FSX still is? Wiith Prepar3D retailing at $199, FSX is still a bargain if you can find the DVDs.
  3. Will they be posting the FS2004 service packs as well?  FS2004 is alive and well, especially since Carenado has begun updating their releases for it.

Anywho, just wanted to post this here as it is an interesting move on behalf of Microsoft.
