Time is a teacher, that eventually claim's the lives of all it's students.
I loved ORBX in FSX and spent hundreds of pounds on it. Had all their offerings. Then I had to make the decision P3D or X-Plane. I took the chance and went XP, but the habits of FSX did not bode well in the new sim. So it was a new learning curve all over again. I still ventured back into FSX for awhile until the confidence and the difference started keeping me longer and longer in XP. Then the day arrived when I no longer wanted FSX. I had learned quickly how much the immersion in XP was superior to FSX, photoscenery showed better and all the add on's were half the price of FSX. So again have spent hundreds at the .org and learnt to do my own photoscenery, I have covered 90% of the USA so far with Europe next. But now the added bonus of ORBX developing for XP is the icing on the cake for me. Glad they are allowing 40% off for ex FSXer's.
