FSUIPC 4 is already out. ASv6 should be operational very soon. Not sure
about anything else.

My sentiments Mike.
 From what I have seen and heard so far, I am not impressed. Add on the fact
that currently FSUPIC and FSNavigator will not work out
of the box.
FSX has, for the moment a thumbs down from me.
Xplane (Linux/Windoze) is looking more rosy.
