Not really. xboard provides some very basic functionality, but is not really
user-friendly. You can play games on FICS, the Free Internet Chess Server,
however you only have the console and a chessboard, which makes seeking
opponents and chatting difficult. (AFAIK. If there's more to it, please tell
me.) A program that is probably similar in functionality to eboard would be
knights, a Qt chess interface.
