Still on the fence.  Looks good, nothing on flight models yet and of course buying several thousand in new planes and airports not very appealing.

Since it's cloud based I'm wondering if a subscription will be involved.

Would love to set some sort of Tac Pack add-on where I can bomb Iran and North Korea 😀

Looks like Microsoft has been listening to the simulation enthusiasts this time around.

I wonder about the engine it will use. Will it still be seriously CPU bound. Not much news on multiple views at this point. Scenery looks great but what type of CPU/GPU needed to run it? I can't seem to find information on the engine structure.

Hi Ed,  From what I gather your pulling the "Outside Model" From the Internet, your essentially flying around Bing Maps from what I understand.  so if you can load Bing Maps you can run the software. However, Being an insider.. I filled the survey and they are very much concerned about multiple views and "average Hardware" of the "average user"  They are also very interested in what kind and how much hardware people are using.
