Because there is a new team of developers actively pursuing FS-X Steam edition.

FS-X is far from dead. REX and other developers are actively releasing new content on Steam as well.

I'm sticking with FS-X. Had tried X-Plane a long while back but let go 'cause there wasn't as much interest in the product.

The nice thing with VATSIM if I understood properly, is that you can fly FS9, FS-X, X-Plane and Prepared all together. Your game in transparent to the other players, and so is your airplane if you're following the rules 'cause you're not supposed to have collisions enabled. :D

Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Premium Edition $99.69, just missed the great sale.

Developer: A2A Simulations, Orbx, FS2Crew, REX, Microsoft Game Studios


But FS-X Steam Edition is still only $27.99 alone (was something like $12 a few days ago).

FS-X Steam Edition
have corrected several bugs and continue to support the product.

Just to name a few:

Built using the VS2013 compiler instead of the old VS2005 library that was used when FSX was first released. This improves performance and overall quality of enjoyment, without removing the capacity to load up all of your old FSX add-ons and DLC that you owned for the original edition

The old GameSpy online mode that was frustrating at best has been removed entirely – it’s now replaced with a modern, easy to use Steam online mode. This makes matchmaking and finding other players to fly with easier than ever – this is one of the main new features and can really up your playability of the series, allowing you to take to the skies with your friends and fellow pilots with ease

Various changes to hotkeys to make the simulator easier to control with the keyboard, and making hotkey functions easier to memorize by having more distinct buttons linked

Huge improvement to the texture quality throughout – the amount of textures that can be loaded, as well as their default quality, has been improved

New aircraft have been included to make your flight experience even more enjoyable and varied

A huge amount of bugs have been fixed that have been plaguing users for many years – this makes it so much easier to fly your aircraft without being bogged down by strange errors

Improved overall load times for everything from the map loading up to the textures that appear on-screen – less lag between textures loading is one of the most noticeable improvements to performance

Improved compatibility with more modern operating systems too – this will run perfectly fine within Windows 7-8.1

I have Win 10 64bit and it runs fine.
