Bruce Artwick

Bruce Artwick was the creator of the first consumer flight simulator software. His original Apple II software was purchased by Microsoft and eventually became Microsoft Flight Simulator. He founded the company SubLogic after graduating at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1977, which released the first version of Flight Simulator the following year. It was named SubLogic after the logic circuits he built for the PDP 11 in DCL. Before being able to find his first company, Artwick worked for Hughes Aircraft in Culver City, California. It was there that he realized he could create his own 3-D dynamic graphics on 6800-based machines. After SubLogic, Bruce founded the Bruce Artwick Organization which continued development of flight simulator products which was eventually bought out by Microsoft.

    A lot of people say to me, “Why did you kill Christ?” “I dunno ... it was one of those parties, got out of hand, you know.” We killed him because he didn’t want to become a doctor, that’s why we killed him.
    —Lenny Bruce (1925–1966)
