Kasparov defeated by Deep Blue

This doesn't have much to do with Windows, but IBM's Deep Blue computer defeated Chess champion Garry Kasparov, a human being, in game 6 of their rematch tournament this week. This has caused a bit of concern with the regular press but as Isaac Asimov liked to point out, computers are only as smart as the people that built them.

Apparently, the women's champion would like to play Deep Blue next
