xboard is a graphical user interface chess computer software program for the X Window System. It is released as Free Software by Tim Mann. It allows connecting to Internet Chess Servers (see: FICS, ICC), using a computer chess engine such as Crafty, both of the above, or even just viewing games. The Microsoft Windows version uses the same backend and is called WinBoard.

You can download it at http://www.tim-mann.org/xboard.html if you don't already have it (you might be surprised).
