From time to time, questions are posted on what is
the best schematic- or PCB-design program.
As a service, members of AVRfreaks.net created this list: This introduction- and instruction-post, and then a single post per program. The pro's and con's are discussed, cost, where to download, and an example.
This thread will be dynamic: post your input, comments etc. Your input will be processed by a moderator, (I will do that for the kick-off), such that a comprehensive thread results.
Discussions are allowed :) , but those posts will disappear in the end, and only the result will be published. That may be a challenge .... but let's give it a try ;)
