I guess you liked "pro Deo" more ???

And what about Opus Dei ?
Thorsten, as a german, you know that "Deo" means "De-odorant" in Germany.
I am not pro Deo as I don't use them. The chess engine is fine, though.
Never heard of "Opus Dei" as a chess engine. As a Protestant, I steer clear of the secretive group.
And this kind of paradoxical discussions are another good hint to change the engine name! :)

I think such discussions are helpful to let programmers know that the naming of their software matters a lot.
My engine was quite strong till I added knowledge to it.

As soon as possible there'll be the MacOS/Linux version.

I guess if one is so sensitive to an engine name one cannot enjoy movies like "Prince of Darkness" or "La maschera del demonio".
"Chirstine" would have been a nice name too.

Not long ago, a few took offense to the name, 'Blitzkrieg' too.

I must admit that I wouldn't have bothered with an engine called 'Satana', but I am happy with 'Sabrina'. :)

Linux/Unix users works friendly with "daemons" while any user has to be scared by "virus", "worms" and so on. We have "dead" processes and we "kill" any process that we don't like.

AlfaBeta tree itself can sometime "explodes", but luckily with no danger for programmers ;)

Information Technology is a cruel world! :)
