    I don't think "computers make it easier" as many people imply. This could be true if computer programs and databases were in rare supply and only possesed by a few players. They would probabably have an advantage. 


    Since virtually everyone has access to such tools, the playing field is level. Furthermore, computers are best for opening study and seeing what some of your future opponents might be inclined to play if you and they are strong enough to be included in the DB.


    However, I belive many players nowadays simply blindly parrot computer analyzed lines and don't necessarily learn how to calculate or analyze a position strategically like players of the past. 


    I think it is possible that the widespread use of computers may actually stifle some players development as they learn to rely to heavily on them.
