Not quite the same. In FSX there is a tradeoff between FPS and detail. Some
will want the detail at the expense of FPS and some just the opposite. A
sports car doesn't get prettier if you drive it slowly. <vbg>

I agree and recall we had exactly this didcussion, after the launch of
FSX and before we upgraded.

One input was to question what would be the reaction to the restriction
of a sports car we'd bought to a manufacturer restriction to "not more
than 30mph".
