Thanks for confirming. I still don't get why so many people insisted in keeping it as a big secret.

I guess they will choose Fire.
Ethereal is a little stronger, but open source.
Xiphos is a hair weaker, but open source.
All the stronger engines are either NN or commercial.
Fizbo is 50 Elo weaker than Fire.

If they choose an open source engine, it is hard to compete with free (why will I pay $75 instead of running make?).
It is, of course, possible that Ethereal or Xiphos will go closed source in order to go commercial.
If you or somebody actually has it, it will be very easy to tell what the CPU version is. Just run some tests. If you like PM me for the testing software.
Ethereal is open source now and forever, as it is built off of the hardwork of all the engines and authors who have been in the game since before I was born. Ethereal has nothing to do with Fritz. However, if anyone wants to send me $75, please feel free.

Ah, the power of false positive thinking.
