But it only has a small library; no 65xx present. I'm using Eagle, www.cadsoft.de, which has a free version as well. AFAIK André Fachat and Jim Brain use it as well.

But with almost no library present and (AFAIK) no conversion tool, I stick with Eagle. Hehe, it's going to end up as the semi-annual PCB CAD war :-) For the record, while I can see Nils' point, I have had all good experiences with EAGLE CAD libraries, and checking an existing library part seems no worse than creating a new one. And, having laid out numerous parts, I dislike doing it at all. Vanessa keeps trying to convert me to the gEDA camp, FLOSS and all. I'm a GPL/BSD kinda-guy, but there's just too much still missing from it for my tastes. So, I'll park myself in the EAGLE camp for now. I will happily admit the user interface leaves some to be desired, and that KiCAD would be my next choice. Jim Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2010-10-05 04:00:12
