As far as I know GNU Chess runs fine under Winboard.
Judging by the number of Microsoft Windows viruses I get sent apparently
from Cracraft's old GNU email address, a lot of people have GNU Chess 5
installed under Windows who don't know enough about computers to be
safely let lose with one.
But anyone so clueless as not to type the name of the software they want
into a search engine and follow the links, or write a subject line, is
probably clueless enough to fall outside our target user base - I don't
need more Windows viruses they don't run under my GNU based operating

Several interesting points. :~)
I suppose many of the GNU projects are portable to various platforms,
including but not limited to Cygwin and minGW. A few are actually
portable to native win32 without such kluges (not intended to insult
Cygwin and minGW, products of genius -- just pointing out that Winblows
has to be kluged to run posix software).
Anyway, I didn't want to take the time to read documentation, so I did
a quick search on sourceforge for a native Win project for chess. That
way I could SEEM helpful without doing much work ;~)
