What a bunch of jerks.
Hi! I've decided in my life that I need a car to get around - what car do you like?
"You don't need a car. Driving makes you weak."
Just answer the question - let him be responsible for his life. If you MUST comment on how he should do analysis, still ANSWER THE QUESTION. Lame.
Fritz looks like a good engine, chess.com online has analysis as well. Of course, ANY software will show you the dip in your score while you are analyzing the game yourself, so if you see points drop, you can look at it.
Most people on this thread are PRE-computer people ... they cherish pencil and paper, they cherish wood and boards, they revere OTB.
Analysis with a computer is changing the game every day - be a part of it.
What you should do is first analyze the game. Then I reccomend you put it into Arena 3.5 (or 3.0) or Scid vs PC to check if your analysis is right.
In my opinion Stockfish 6 is the best, as second strongest engine right now (behind Komodo, but you really don't need to spend $60+ on an engine that's only 16 points higher than the other one). It is also free, and is easily downloadable on Windows or Macintosh. Linux is another story, but unless you have Linux, Stockfish 6 is very good.
Stockfish 6 works just fine on Linux also. Many distros have a pre-compiled version in their package manager.
Correction: Stockfish 6 works fine on Linux, but I couldn't seem to find a way to download Arena on Linux.
I'm not sure about Scid vs PC, but I believe it works fine on Linux as well.
But just a question for the OP; why do you need this information? In my expierience, when I was at your level (OP), I needed very little computer work. Maybe just tactics and videos, and that's it! I analyzed my game with my coach (you can probably just ask people in the forums to do the same thing) and myself, so I didn't need much computer.
But that's just me. Maybe someone else thinks otherwise. Just my 2 cents.
Therer is no special build for Linux. You just install the windoze version, Arena works under WINE almost perfectly.
Scid vs PC has native 32 and 64 bit versions, which do work fine.
I have Linux, and I can confirm that both scid-vs-pc and Stockfish run natively on it.
It means he deleted his comment.
And yeah, stockfish 6 is best
The question was:
Like: "Come again?", "You said something?" etc...
And by the way, you compare apples and oranges. I may also think that Mercedes is the best, but why would I write such a thing here, in this thread?
