Over the past few years, I've made several halfhearted attempts to learn to use PCB design software. I've been at a bit of a disadvantage for some time, because I use a Macintosh computer, and many of the more popular PCBCAD packages aren't available for this platform. That's changing now. Eagle and KiCAD have native Mac versions. I've downloaded both Eagle and KiCAD, fired them both up to have a look, and made initial attempts at following some tutorials. From various comments I've read here and on other forums, it seems that KiCAD is easier to use. So, that's probably what I'll go with. However, before I take the plunge, I thought I should get some input from other members here, for tips and recommendations.
