    You seemed to differentiate between kestroke emulators and interfaces, could ou elaborate? I know I am asking a lot.

    a Keyboard emulator is essentially a keyboard without the keys. It allows you to attache 3rd party switches to it to produce keystrokes. Other interfaces have software or allow you to program independant functions for each switch you have assigned.

    Hope that helps.

    So the emulator is for when you write your own programs and the other interfaces work with existing programs like FS. So all of the sophisticated cockpits out there are built around MSFS , for the most part?

    For the most part, yes. But you can just as easily build one for Orbiter.
