Scid vs. PC is a free and simple usability and bug-fix fork of Scid (written by Shane Hudson and Pascal Georges).
With Scid vs. PC you can play chess online or against the computer, browse tournaments downloaded in pgn format, and create huge chess databases.
Chess is a very technical thing. A single game can be analysed through and through, openings can fill volumes, and tournaments are full of statistics about winners, losers and openings played.
Scid is a program whose original purpose was to combine all this information into databases of various sorts; hence it's name "Shane's Chess Information Database".
Scid vs. PC is more of a consumer chess program than Scid. Scid vs. PC is meant for people who want to play chess with an attractive interface, without having to understand the complex database capabilities of Scid.
