Later, other people than the team responded, and since most were against DS, I did not want to remove them to keep some balance. Read my original intention. If you judge it "p...

Re: Freeware program for analysis?

Once a considerable elo has been gained, offer that version for sale for $75 to a $100 or whatever the market will pay. 6. The original authors can keep 50% of...
