A Very good tool
Just amazing. Powerful, fast, easy to use, and from what I can tell, a surprisingly small footprint
SCIDVSPC is a fork of the Shane's chess database. This version, however, is well maintained and features many improvements over the old SCID program, which has been sadly neglected. SCIDVSPC is a serious contender against Chessbase, a commercial chess database. It works flawlessly under Linux and, I would venture, under Windows and Mac. Highly recommended for all serious chess players!
