Alas ofcourse i will buy Rybka 4 but possible with the next twist: the same period as Vas is completely silent here at the forum, the same time i will be hesitating after the release of Rybka 4 to buy it.
I'm not sure what the day counter is exactly right now but i expect it to be somewhere in the thirty days? Mind boggling to imagine what will be happening with the release date if all the possible Rybka buyers will do this....

Vas would ignore their blackmails, and they'd end buying the engine anyway, or the people that do buy it would have an advantage against them, so I'd support them doing that.

Oh wait, you said "all possible buyers", I'd say, not on this universe! I think it gets into the terrain of Game Theory, if all people didn't buy Rybka 4 for some reason, they could still buy it at anytime, so a person buying it would have some 80 elo advantage against everyone else (for that time period), that payoff is much higher than getting the engine released sooner, so he would buy the engine anyway. Every logical person would do the same and Rybka 4 wouldn't lose many sales, I don't think Vas would lose much from the sales of illogical persons.

I guess Vas has learnt how to finish his job.
It is to completely stay disconnected from us. :-)

And where is the logic?
Let the Rybka team earn a part of the money some months later. Why not.
They'll have to feed children also then.
