I have to agree with you in that, as I believe that the strength of CM hasnt
improved much (if any) in the last few versions. It seems like buying the same
engine with differant skin.
But I think the ussual customers of CM are not serious players, and probabaly
doenst care much about its strenght, but more on its features. But again the
engine itself is strong enough to beat 90 percent of chess players i the world,
so for average (chess-playing) custmers its no big deal.
