Which do you prefer? Which provides better overall visibility?
Real pieces are alwasy best, I believe, but sometimes they can get "lost", even when looking from over head....it would be great sometimes to have the best of both worlds - playing the board, but able to view the more uncluttered view of a computer screen....
In my opinion, he's just being modest. I think that either way is fine, it matters what you are personally used to
I like real pieces, the computer starts to give me eye strain after awhile.
This "computer view" has been known long before chess computers were invented (diagrams), so I would rather call it simply 2D view ;) personally I prefer 2D.
I agree as for computer 3D views being useless ("fancy" sets even more so)
