Default ChessBase and FRC960

Hello Chesslovers,

Now ChessBase supports FRC960. This "new" feature is already supported by
Arena (also before Fritz 11). This is not the first time ChessBase picks a
feature firstly supported by Arena and promots like their own achievement,
an other one beeing for instance the UCI support.

Reading this: "To be fair, Fischer wasn't the first to voice the concern
that memorization was ruining the game; J.R. Capablanca was saying the same
thing back in the 1920's. Capa, like Fischer, had the idea that the game
should be changed and he advocated the addition of a new major piece, the
Chancellor, which would appear between a Bishop and either the King or Queen
(I forget which one, sorry). The game would consequently be played on a 9x9
board" on the ChessBase page:

you will seee they accept themselves they "do not know". Standard Capablanca
Chess is played on a 10x8 board. A variant of Capablanca Chess is played on
a 10x10 board. Are they as competent in real chess as in this issue ?If you
have called their support in the past you will already know the answer. They
are more busy kicking people from their server than doing research, fixing
bugs or support customers. This tells us a lot of how certain isuues are
addressed by them.
