You clearly are not from this planet.

Something with a book from 1999 like deepfritz you can't
compare with something with a well tested
tournament book from 2002.

I hope you realize that your statements is complete nonsense.
deepfritz had in 99 a book from that 1999. Nimzo from 1998.

The rating math you do is irrelevant. Don't argue for 50
hours. Play a bunch of games in those hours using an auto232
cable. Put nimzo98 on a 1.6 Ghz K7 and put some modern software,
for example Shredder6 on a 1.6ghz K7.

Give them both 3 minutes a move.

Then report to me back the results.

Shredder6 has way more knowledge than nimzo98. So no way that
Nimzo can get lucky against shredder6, whereas against fritz
with its patzer chess the garantuee for 10-0 is less strong,
but still very possible.

Good luck. Don't expect it to win a single point though. It'll be 10-0
