- human vs human, human vs computer and computer vs computer matches under time controls

software "informer" misinforms people that this app is coded in Pascal, when in fact it is a program written in Java. Still excellent chess app. units .software.informer.com / download-units-pascal-source-code-chess
Finally a good looking chess software which works in linux. Not just the user interface, the code also looks beautiful!
Definitely a fine freeware chess program.
Great open source chess program. Not as advanced as some other ones used by professionals, but I don't believe that's what Haundrix is trying to accomplish. Give it a try, you'll like it!
