Software Complexity

Simplicity is not the opposite of complexity. Simplicity is too often an excuse for being simplistic. The world doesn't need any more stupid software. The opposite of complexity is beautiful, elegant design.

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

The new Microsoft Flight Simulator is nuts!

Can you believe the screen shot below is simulated? I snapped this while flying over Woodinville in the simulator with max settings which I can do because I have a nice powerful desktop with NVidia 1080 GPU. So far I am super impressed that I can fly the entire planet. These guys have timed this perfectly what with all the covid-19 lockdowns and everything!
