One question for you Mike. Have you run X Plane under Windows as well as
Linux? If so is there any notable difference in the sim across OS's?

Try http://www.x-plane.com/xworld.html and http://www.x-plane.org/ (the
'Community' tab) for links to various X-Plane resources and communities.

Cost of Linux + X-Plane would be a whole lot less than a new PC +
Vista/FSX and shouldn't cause the bank manager any sweats.  Most Linux
distros are available FoC.  Bones has just beaten me to the draw with
the bargain cost of X-Plane.  And to answer his question about upgrading
- this is free within a given version, i.e. 8.xx to 8.yy.  More outlay
only when a new version 9 comes along.
