GNU Chess isn't rated all that high, actually.

It's also been abandoned.

In the old days, GNU Chess 2 & GNJ Chess 3 were very actively developed. It
was very much a group effort.

Things started declaining with GNU Chess 4 and stopped completely with GNU
Chess 5.


It's hard to say what its rating really is because nobody plays the current
versions of GNU Chess in any tournaments anymore.

Figure a couple hundred points below Crafty, though. Which puts it below
other open source programs as well, but above many of the simpler ones.

It would be interesting to know what the ratings are for the v2, v3, v4 and
v5 versions on modern hardware. But I doubt anybody is going to do the
effort to find out.

(Although you never know.... it's possible somebody has already done that
and I just don't know about it. You could check around the internet chess
servers and the various chess forums.)
