Chess Game

I am looking for some time now for a good game of chess.
I am running multiple operating systems at home.
There is a decent chess in OS-X, Windows Vista and 7 has a decent one, please make one for the portable apps as well.

Awesome Chess Game

The portable beta release is awesome!
So the first test with it: a 1 on 1 game.
Yes that is nice but I am not a world renown Chess Master. So I had to cheat in order to stress the software a little.
So I launched my Portable apps on my EEE laptop, started the chess game,default settings. I turned on my MacPro, started the chess game there - advanced level, middle line there.
On EEE Laptop I am running a Windows 7 beta release.
The game took about an hour, the poor laptop It was stressing it's cooling fan all the time, but in the end, It beat the MAC!!!
In reality the portable chess game is a mean piece of software because it is not shy on using the available resources to max, however, throughout the game it was stable, the GUI was responsive at all time, the game went on with constant fluidity, and in the end, it proved that this chess tool is something to be respected.
This was 1 out of 3 games that I intended to play.

EEE against MacPro

Funny!

Others programs are portable by default

Almost all open source chess programs available, are portable, except perhaps those that require installation programs.

I mean:

SCID, Arena, ChessPad, all the engines (winbord or uci), compochess.

Just try them.

Brutal Chess

I recommend Brutal Chess. It runs GREAT on both Windows and Linux, and looks fantastic. Highly recommended.

Put all violators of the Constitution in jail.
