As we move into the six month of ACES team members writing blogs and interacting on Flight Simulator user community boards, I thought it appropriate to point people to this gem from Guy Kawasaki (former Apple evangelist):

For an entertaining read, check out the comments...
I note that one of his rules is to develop API's to allow the extension of the product by the community. While I know you have the Pipes SDK for this purpose, it seems that FSUIPC has a far larger array of variables available (and some are pokeable, I assume?). It would be nice to have an interface to all the possible variables coming direct from MS. And it would be nice to have most of those as pokeable variables.
While I know that members of the 3rd party community would agree that you guys want more from us, and could do more with more, I would point out that we actually do a *lot* of work to support the 3rd party community, already, and that part of the reason the FS add-on community is so strong has been our support in that arena.
I think we compare very well with nearly every other current game developer today.
That being said, we've got more to do in that arena, and I believe that you'll be happier with what we do in the future.
Probably not enough... but better.
