Subject: How important are Bitboards?

Hi,

I've two questions:

1.)
is using bitboards a necessary condition to write a strong chess engine? And if
not so, what other good/fast solution we have for the board representation?

2.)
And are there strong freeware or commercial chess engines, which don't use
bitboards?
And what kind of board representation they use?

Thanks for your comments
Martin
