    Most seriously doubtful. My understanding is that FSX makes heavy use of DirectX graphics which is not compatible with MacOS. I wish they'd stick with OpenGL, but Microsoft wouldn't be who they are if they didn't create proprietary technologies to encourage folks not to defect away from their platform.

    Shame, 'cause the screenshots of FSX that I've seen are **** amazing.

    Flight Simulator hasn't been around on the Mac platform since version 4. Have a look at those laughable graphics!
