So, which makes more sense to you? Purchase through STEAM, or through Microsoft Store?
If you like the Sick Puppy Custom Sound Pack the please consider contributing for future updates by sending a months dues to Hitech Creations for account "Chalenge." Every little bit helps.

Purchase - not at all.

J/K.  Sort of.  I'll probably buy it through Steam just to deprive Microsoft of 30% revenue.

I tried MS first, but it wouldn't let me install it because it said my device wasn't registered with my MS account. Dicked around with it for 30-45 minutes before refunding and buying through Steam.

I'll probably get it from Steam on Wednesday.
Hope it has an offline mode, so I don't have to connect to Steam everytime I want to just fly around a little.

Steam says I've had 15 hours Gameplay.
I still have 3GBs to download before I actually have "Gameplay".
Worst Launcher in world history.

It isn't really a launcher. Steam is launching FlightSimulator.exe.

You don't have to. You can buy from Microsoft and link your Microsoft account.
