Open-Source GUI hype. If one of those was actually designed for the average player and their analysis, and came preloaded with some nice open-source engine...

This community would have to find some design talent, though. One only has to look at the TCEC GUI, which is extremely functional in a bleak and horrid sort of way.
CuteChess is what I use, for engine matches anyway.

Opinions expressed here are my own, and not necessarily those of the CCRL Group.

This was a note I sent to Chessbase on 02/21/2021.

Well done. They'll do as much as the consuming public allows them to get away with. If the consuming public holds them accountable, they'll have to change.

I predict soon ChessBase try to twist this universal condemnation of their misconduct into some smear campaign of a miserable person. But no, ASilver is fully aware of the scam and most of the misleading contents are either said or written by himself, and ChessBase is fully on board with those.
They have now tried to smear other companies to defend themselves:

@tordr
ChessBase and Albert Silver claim that Stockfish is used in "commercial apps like Play Magnus". I wrote the AI part of that app. It's 100% my own work, based on an early ancestor of Stockfish for which I was the only author and had the full copyright. Not like FF2 at all.
