Going gEDA

That's it. I'm transitioning to gEDA from Eagle. Why you might ask? Is it because I am a OSS dork that thinks that anything open source is better? No. Does gEDA have features that make it significantly better than Eagle? No. I like Eagle. There is just one problem. It is expensive.

Eagle provides a great service to hobbyists and students, or anybody non profit by making a free version for non-commercial use. I, however, want to start selling my designs. I probably won't make enough money to justify the truly expensive commercial version of Eagle.

So, long story short, I want to be legit! Expect a comparison of gEDA/PCB and Eagle in a month or so.

  1. I noticed you wrote this 10 months ago. Did you ever make the transition? I'm considering it myself and I've love to hear from someone else who'd already done it.
