I dont understand the part about courage .... baron is a very strong engine and
has been around for much longer (and is also SMP btw).
Amateur programmers code for the fun of it , and just 'cos a newer/stronger
engine comes out as opensource does not mean that they others should call it
quits :)
Going by this logic , if shredder becomes opensource , you will expect everyone
else to quit chess development and focus only on it ;-)

Go baron go !
