I am looking for software that has chess engine analysis but also allows me to take notes and save games. I have used Scid in the past for this and liked it, but I just want to see if there is something better out there.
The old Fritz 5.32 (last free version) does this. Of course it is not as powerful as the latest version (big understatement). It is available here http://freechess.50webs.com/fritz.html but note that it will need some work (described on the website) to get it to run on modern versions of Windows.
I alternate between Fritz 8, which is not quite as old as the free version and runs on modern operating systems, and Scid vs PC which is a much more modern fork of Scid and could also be worth trying especially if you are still stuck on original Scid.
Chessbase is top of the line, but there are a lot of alternatives: Hiarcs Chess Explorer, the Shredder GUIs, Aquarium, Chess Assistant and Chesspartner.
Arena is free, but has a few of the menu items in German, and is perhaps more for playing engines than analysis. Other free ones are Chesspad, Kvetka, Penguin and Tarrasch.
SCID is pretty good for a free program, but the commercial ones have a lot of interesting features.
