Chessmaster is the best selling program in the world, is it too much to ask for
DeKoening to actually improve the engine at least a little in the next version?
 I feel as if the company that is paying him is being cheated.  No slaps against
anyone i could be wrong, that's just my opinion.  I make the statement because i
would like that engine to actually be improved it has a very nice style of play.
