Go up one level in this thread


I'm please that Ruffian has gone commercial but my first impression is that it
seems *relatively* expensive.  At 50 Euro (~$59.50) it is 30% more than all of
the single processor ChessBase products sold by ICD ($45).  This seems a bit
steep for a product that, if it is +70 ELO above Ruffian 1.01 (yet to be
proven), would be ~2748 on the SSDF, which is still below Shredder, Junior and
Fritz.  Anyway I do hope that it is a success.

Once point that is unclear.  Is there a Linux version of Arena included?
