For someone like me you need a really simple PCB layout program – and best it runs on linux too. Eagle is really nice – even though unfree (as in speech) – but it lacks some useability aspects. It took me two hours to design a package that wasn’t in the libs yet (and no, google didn’t find anything) and even then that part wouldn’t work for magical reasons. So, some searching and i’ve found http://www.diptrace.com/ – unfree too, but officially supported on wine (it DOES run smoothly on a recent wine) and … what should i say? Even a beginner like me can design a simple new package and simple board with good looking layout in under a hours. Yay!
