An up-to-date look at free software and its makers

PROJECTS ON THE MOVE

Article from Issue 76/2007

In this month’s Projects on the Move, we observe the battle between man and (chess) machine and check out the free Colonization clone. Also in this issue, tools for Linux users who find themselves facing the Windows prompt.

It is hard to recall a game of chess that has seen as much publicity as did the game between world chess champion Wladimir Borissowitsch Kramnik and the computer Deep Fritz, a multiple CPU machine running the Fritz chess program. Although this world champion software is a commercial Windows program, players who need something less challenging than Kramnik may appreciate free chess engines such as GNU Chess or Crafty.
