They did, in the past (prior to F7's UCI compatability).

Due to the different GUI/Engine concepts of WinBoard and Fritz, the CB. WinBoard
adapter never worked good enough, at least not with every WB. engine (although
there are some it works ok for, i.e. Delfi AFAIK). That adapter is discontinued,
and not included anymore with new CB. programs.

The ChessBase WB. adapter version of Nov. 2000 worked best; it is included i.e.
with Yace (but not needed for Yace of course if you have F7/8 etc., only for
older CB GUIs).

But I assume people will prefer the Wb2Uci method anyway.
