Go up one level in this thread



I thank for yours opinions about the programs.

Understand, I was not interested in computer chess during 5
years. Suddenly, as if it was magic, I see an engine
that is much better than the other ones. For me, if it will delay
6 months until giving Rybka 1.0, I give myself for satisfied,
although I respect yours opinion.
