Giving Back to KiCad

Posted by: Dave Vandenbout in Blog Post 1 year, 12 months ago

I switched over to KiCad a while ago, mainly because paying fees for Eagle upgrades that didn't have much "up" in them seemed pretty stupid. In exchange for providing a free tool, the KiCad open-source developers get a lot of grief, mostly about the GUI and library management. That's to be expected: all EDA software, like unhappy families, sucks in its own unique way. A lot of these are bike-shed issues that are easy to understand so people form opinions they're not shy about expressing. But it's not a big problem to me as long as the right wires end up in the right places. It's fine to voice your concerns so the developers get some feedback; then put on your big-boy pants and make do with what you've got. <<more...>>
