Interesting to see a guy supporting the theft of intellectual property, and posting it openly. He suggests encouraging others to steal Vas's work in the name of "progress". You would think Vas had retired and was no longer building upon his own previous work, rather than working day and night like a dog as he is. I guess it isn't surprising. What he really wants is a consensual go-ahead to steal the code and use it himself in his own engine. The obvious clincher is that nowhere does he suggest decompiling and taking code from other engines. I guess progress is only achieved by stealing from Rybka.Dr.Wael Deeb wrote:http://www.frayerchess.com/
Well well here you all are. disappointed in your high priest Vasik Rajlich. He stoot on the shoulders of geniuses to develop his program (Rybka), while at the same time jealousy claming any improvements as his personal
Fat and bloated with success he had no need to fix the bugs in Rybka 3. Keeping you all tagging along like so many puppy dogs trying to be useful to their master.
Now as a clear light of morning comes streaming through the window, only now you see. Greed is the great destroyer of men.
For over 16 months we have been waiting for an update that did not come. Vas made many promises that went unfulfilled. Many of you on this forum contributed to the development of Rybka from its very beginnings. Testing and offering solutions to problems that directly lead to increasing its strenght. We all paid tribute, literally gold from our pockets went into his hands.
The engine chess community put all their eggs in one basket, only to find the entrusted man making deals with his compititors and failing to act upon the consensus of his customers.
My question now is: Shall we stand behind a man we no longer trust to work in our best interests or return to the proven method of scientific development of allowing others to build upon past work.
Should we help protect Vas's profits by yelling "Clone" every time we see a chess engine (RobboLito) that possibly used some of his ideas in its code. Or should we all work together to encourage to build upon his work and continue the advancement of chess programs.
Let us have this debate.
All in all, utterly pathetic.
