    Indeed...

    Despite there exists KiCad, it's not enough for different use cases: It doesn't offer the same feature level of electronics suites Altium Limited and Cadence and Mentor Graphics. Also many companies and universities sold their soul to them too, despite KiCad being more than adequate.

      Exactly. Regardless of how much I like, use, and prefer open source software, there are enough cases where proprietary solutions are just better, more user friendly, have better features, etc that it isn't even worth mentioning programs by name or what they do.

      For anyone who doesn't get the joke, timofonic listed like 13 or 14 pieces of proprietary software and wanted to know how well the programs ran under two open source solutions and one closed source solution. Something like 42 scenarios & 126 hours if one did the bare minimum of trying each program in each environment and attempting solutions for just an hour. IMHO, that's a lot of shit to ask for in a forum comment

      I guess $111.11 an hour is a little steep, but, then again, someone would have to buy 14 programs and Crossover so it'd be more like $90-$100/hr

        You got it too!

        And this is why FOSS needs a lot more work than people think.

        There's lots of work to do to reach the feature and user friendliness of certain proprietary software, specially in complex stuff related to design (electronics, 3D, graphics, etc.).

        But not only that, it's very difficult to test very complex and recent software in Wine. Even more difficult to make it work stable in short time in Wine.

        How to make it possible?
