The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Flight Simulator ready for takeoff

Seems reasonable to me... 

It may be hard to believe if you still think of Flight Simulator as a slow, complicated and hypertechnical "game" that appeals mainly to aviation buffs.

But Microsoft has revamped the software to make it more realistic and showcase the new graphics capabilities of Windows Vista.

I wouldn't be surprised if Flight Simulator X — and future games built on its realistic model of Earth — become killer applications that convince millions of people that it's worth upgrading to a Vista PC.
