Boris 2.5 works with Chafitz Modular Game System and Chafitz Great Game Machine.  Boris 2.5 and Sargon 2.5 are the same chess programs but with different names, perhaps initially planned to target different World markets with for example Sargon 2.5 for Europe and Boris 2.5 for North America.  Or possibly the name change is a result of Dan & Kathe Spracklen leaving Chafitz and joining Fidelity Electronics.
