gEDA: GPL'd suite of Electronic Design Automation

I've stumbled on gEDA, the next free EDA that you can use in Linux after Eagle CAD (but it's quite amazing to know that this tool is much older than Eagle).

I've tried its tutorial, and I think it's quite good (although I'm not sure how good it is when you're about to design 4-layers board).

The downside that I know so far is that the usage is very difficult. It's unlike click and run Eagle CAD (or any professional EDA).

Anyway, since I've only tested it for 2-hours, I don't think my review is complete enough. I'll post some more when I got more experience with this software.
