Fritzing is an open-source electronic design tool focusing on makers, hobbyists, and everyone else interested in getting creative with interactive electronics. Document your electronic sketches, learn from example projects, produce your own PCBs, and share with the community. Fritzing differs from other tools through:
A real-world breadboard view that is hands-on and easy to understandA visual component library including the Arduino, Raspberry Pi, SparkFun parts and many moreAn intuitive user interface, with seamless switching between breadboard, schematic and pcb designThe lively community on fritzing.org exchanges projects and tips, and there is also a PCB service "Fritzing Fab" that produces user designs.

at first it was really a pleasant surprise!!!
nice UI, modern, good looking... really
however, when you want to make a evry basic circuit, using a JFET transitor,
you get stuck...
because
A: the library doesn't have JFET transistors...
B: at the forum, the kind develoipers explain that you should make yourself the icons you need...
C: at the same time, you see all the fancy stuff, like arduino and the like, those parts are all well made...
D: the fet transistor that could be "just" used... is enormous...
it should occupy 3 pins in 3 rows of a veroboard... (stripboard)... but it does about 4 x 3 pins !!!
which is very-very stupid...
not to mention that the orientation of the transistor cannot be easily figured...
so, all in all, I cannot use it...
seriously, I don't understand why LInux Mint / Ubuntu / debian has Fritzing in their software repos... and not others...
like DIYLC ... DIY layout Creator
impression:
commercialism... that is, making a cool looking open source application with selling stuff in mind... with commercial linking in mind...
cool loking is not enough, also misleading...
I want to draw circuits and I cannot use it, cause what I want to make, simple JFET circuits, for example, is not what they focus on... (large circuits with expensive parts)
