about:   P.C. said in 2000: "I hope you'll stay with me whilst I try and put this review into context for you, I think it's important to include some background information for me to place force feed back in perspective.

Microsoft Intellimouse Optical  
about:   I've been using a Microsoft Optical mouse for a while now and I love the accuracy. I can now easily edit pictures in single-pixel increments and yeeee-haaaaaaa -- no more cleaning that little rubber ball that's been the bane of my existence since the days of the Atari ST!

Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 joystick  
about:   Upon getting the Force Feedback 2 out of the box I was impressed by the solid feel of this stick, in the weight stakes it was right up there with my old Thrustmaster Pro.

Flight Simulator Series
about:   This website IS dedicated to the detailed description of the Microsoft Flight Simulator history. This in fact means, that it includes subLOGIC Flight Simulator and few relate add-ons as well. In my opinion, it is necessary to save the information for history. My website started in 2005 and I hope that it will be the most accurate and valuable source of information for you. - Josef HavlĂ­k.

Wright Flyer, First flight 1903  
about:   "Today we can easily imagine the exhilaration of that first flight, but we may not at first pause to consider the realities of the airborne experience: wooden propellors driven by bicycle chains, muslin-covered wings, an engine generating 12 horsepower. Takeoffs and landings are unpredictable at best, and the first successful flight lasted all of 12 seconds. The elegance of such astonishing success belies a crucible of self-sacrifice and daredevil perseverance."
