If Rybka 4 will be about 80 elo more than R3, if it comes out soon, I would be the first to say, please spend another 6 months, if there are things to be done which would make it 120 elo more instead. Better than 80 elo now, and another 80 elo for Rybka 5, a year after.
This also goes for analysis functions, and other things, and clearing up of bugs etc.
And if in 6 month the beta R5 is 40 ELO point stronger than R4, I am also ready to buy it.
Maybe I shouldn't say that to Vas or he will know how to optimize cash from me. :-)
Maybe Vas should investigate.
>What would people be willing to pay to ensure that they're the only ones getting Rybka 4?
Are you on glacier time? LOL

On that logic why not wait 5 years before putting R4 out that way you could have knowledge that would have been implimented within Rybka's 5-6-7-8-9 into Rybka 4 around Nov or Dec 2014. LOL and ad infinium....
> if things which were in mind for Rybka 5, will be already in Rybka 4. For this, I'll wait another 6 months ANY time.
And if you are offered then to wait again 6 months to get more strength and festures you'll wait again?
And if 6 months later again... and again...?
No, such a logic doesn't satify me.
I think it's time to see a good new Rybka. And I assume, if she is stable, she is good and strong!
And in the future I'll feel similar when I'm waiting for R5 (or a drastically starched F13 or S13 :-D )
(I also agree that being stable is of major importance).
You ask why not wait 5 years and then make rybka 5,6,7,8,9, all into a great rybka 4?
Because, I (personally) would be very interested in something which is highly superior to Rybka 3, and that it should be in the quite near future, in time for when I'll have my new computer set-up, and will be able to get down to a bit more chess. But I'm affraid that if it is MUCH longer (like 5 years), then I may no longer have the time to stay interested in chess/computerchess, as my life will by then be far too full with other things.
Also, I'm helping Vas on how to make all rybka 3 owners want to buy rybka 4.
