  • Ah yes, sorry it slipped my mind. Autodesk bought Eagle.

    I take that as more incentive to look at KiCad.

    Now that I think about it more, the Autodesk subscription thing might be a great thing. I have a feeling that KiCAD is getting more users and probably becoming better.

    I think I'll get a 2 year Eagle license and then check in on KiCAD in a couple years...

    That pathway works too..
    KiCad has a quite good Eagle import, and is quite good already.
    That means you can take any of your Eagle designs, and try both packages on a design you know.
  • 1. KiCad
    2. Eagle
  • A big plus for KiCad is that it runs on many platforms - not just Windows. (Sorry if someone already noted that.)

    Some times my mind seems to wander..... these days I just tag along.

    Eagle, at least the version I had (4.16 or so), worked on win, Linux and MacOSX. With different problems on any of them. On Win10 worked much better than on win7. I switched to KiCad, fully.
