      Err, point of order? HAD rather than has! After their staggering decision to close ACES studio when they were close to releasing MSTS2 I think many SIM fans (let alone SIM publishers) will be very sceptical about M$ as a bedfellow? .....or is that just me? There may be something in this for M$ but what do SIM fans or independent SIM publishers get out of this? If it frees the SIM from STEAM it might be a plus ...in many folks minds if not everyone's?
