A pilot was sent to evaluate a new simulator before acceptance. As he was taxiing out for take-off he felt the virtual aircraft's response wasn't the fidelity he would expect. "So I asked where they got the simulator's aircraft model from," he tells your favourite uncle. "They said we used the basic model from our 'name-removed-to-protect-the-innocent' simulator", our intrepid evaluation pilot added "but that's got a tailwheel, my aircraft's got a nose gear". The response was, apparently, "does it matter?". Yes.
