Ron, I did it with the Windows 7 release candidate back in 2009. I think I'm going to pass this time. I'm happy with the way FSX runs on Windows 7 and if it ain't broke why fix it. Let us know how it works out for you please.

Regards,

Having purchased the MacBook Pro I'm using to type this response, quite frankly 'upgrading' to an OS from MS doesn't do anything for me anymore! I love the 21 sec boot up, the 3 sec close down, and everything indeed works! I have Vista 64 on my gaming machine that is used now only for gaming, so moving to Win 8 will be unnecessary for me, thank goodness! It was Office 2007 and 2010 which finally killed all interest in MS for me, though they did help declutter the software and its heinous Ribbon of Hell when they put out Office 2011 for Mac ;o)Noel
