As far as I know registered users have free access to both 32 and 64 bits
versions of Rybka and to the optimised book by J Noomen.
It's a pity that having a 64 bits OS the best version of the program is not used
for testing and that another probably weaker book has been chosen.
I just wondered who would deliberately choose to proceed in such a way.
Probably I was wrong ...

As regards Toga, nothing is said regarding the parameters that are used in this
match. Are the new pruning extensions turned on or no ?

In view of these strange testing conditions and missing informations  I strongly
feel that the signification of the test will probably remain limited even when
more games will be added.
