    Yanno, it is the height of hubris to slander others by accusing them of not "learning to take advantage of the features and defaults in 8.1".

    We've learned them, and rejected them as garbage, not suitable for use.

    @burgurne, check your drivers, Flightsim X worked on my system without any tinkering. Loosing vibration on a joystick sometimes but that was happening on Win7 too.

    Windows 9, eh? Hopefully it would come with more options. I kinda feel locked up with Windows 8.1, especially after upgrading from W8 and losing some search options from the charms bar. The W8 ui just feels quite heavy imo. Awaiting this as well
    A Start Menu is also expected to make a return in some shape, way or form.

    FlightSim X works fine on my 8.1 system too. I did a clean install though, not an upgrade though the store. If he did the store upgrade that could explain some of his issues like the BSOD's.

    I can get flightsim to work just fine too, but ONLY if I install it on my C:\ drive, which I don't want to.
    And I'm not alone with this:
    Flight Simulator X in Windows 8

    Neither does the cstm file, UIAutomationCore.dll help.
