Ok, I want to ask a few questions before clicking submit when buying online "Deep Rybka 4 Aquarium (Download)".

1.  Do I receive everything via the download version vs the DVD version, does the download version leave anything out due to size.  For example will I also receive the "Openings Encylopedia 2010" free with the download version and all databases.

2.  Deep Rybka 4 Aquarium for $119 is very close to the price of $139 for "Chess Assistant 11 Professional (Download)", which includes Deep Rybka 4.  I wish there was a table showing the clear differences, intuitively CA11 Pro with DR4 seems like a better deal.  Does ChessOK plan in the future to focus more on Aquarium vs CA.

3.  If I do not purchase "Rybka 4 Aquarium Opening Book by Jiri Dufek (Download)"  for $25 can Aquarium (I'm leaning towards Aquarium vs CA) load CTG Chessbase books.  If not does the above OE 2010 serve as a opening book for the engine.

4. If I do purchase "Rybka 4 Aquarium Opening Book by Jiri Dufek (Download)" will this only work in ChessOk products, or can this be converted to CTG format to use with Fritz interface.

Thats about it, thanks!

1. They're identical. The databases are ~2GB so it'll take some time to download, although much faster than DVD shipping :)
2. Go with Aquarium, Chess Assistant is in maintenance development, while Aquarium is in active.
3. Aquarium can load and read the CTG books (but not write/edit). You can use CTG books for an engine via Book Adapter. Openings Encyclopedia is basically a hugebase with annotations, comments, evaluations, simple GUI and all the stuff. It isn't the opening book.
4. Only compatible with Aquarium, though clearly superior to the .ctg analogs.

and you will be able to use remote rybka with aquarium too right?

When it comes - yes. You can already use some "remotes" with networking capabilities, like running IDEA on a couple of connected computers, etc :)
