GPL EDA -- Electronics design software (metapackage)
  5 reviews

The gEDA project has produced and continues working on a full GPL'd suite and toolkit of Electronic Design Automation tools. These tools are used for electrical circuit design, schematic capture, simulation, prototyping, and production. Currently, the gEDA project offers a mature suite of free software applications for electronics design, including schematic capture, attribute management, bill of materials (BOM) generation, netlisting into over 20 netlist formats, analog and digital simulation, and printed circuit board (PCB) layout.

This is a metapackage which depends on the components required for a typical gEDA installation.

it is absolutely awesome, besides, FREE and open source software is a totally different thing altogether, compared to commercial products

GEDA appears to be a HUGE project...
a complex application suite, so to speak...
performing pretty well at each task, be it schematic drawing or PCB design..., the latter of which I'm only to start, but the application already looks fancy...

I'm really happy that GEDA exists

Its Great, takes some time to learn but its the best free system I know of.

Able to create excellent schematics with a very large library of components.

Open source EDA suite with no limitations. Flexible, sophisticated, scriptable, and a high learning curve. Better than Kicad for multilayer and SMT design (IMHO). Not for those shy of the command line or unfamiliar with linux file structure. You'll be getting your hands dirty setting things up.
