The title pretty much says it all. The last time there was a FlightSimulator for Macintosh was FS4 (which I have). It was very good back in 1993, but today it is, well, less than satisfactory. I have used FS2002 on a friend's PC, and love the programme. I would dearly love to be able to use FS2002 on my own computer, but at the moment, the only option would be using Virtual PC. I am told that even with the best Mac available, it would still not run FS2002 very well, as the programme is emulating everything (cpu, graphics chip, ram, etc) - feel free to confirm or deny this if you have experience using Flight Sim on a Mac with VPC.
Now, I recall hearing some time ago, around the time of the launch of MacOS X, that Microsoft was developing a version of FS2002 to run on OS X. Since then (this would be at least a year and a half ago), I have not heard another word about this. Whats the deal? Does anyone know whethere it is still in the works, has been dropped, or was never being seriously considered to start with?
The only other option would be to throw together a bare bones PC specifically to run FS, but I would much rather have it all on my one machine!
