Naysayers!

Hush your mouths and ask forgiveness for your blasphemy! Thank your stars
you have such a wonderful tool as Protel to work with... (there are much
worse things to be saddled with). I would be in bliss to once again have
Protel to use for my daily work, minor anomalies and all.

I'm at a new company where the available tools are Innoveda's Viewdraw and
Pads. After 15 years of OrCAD and 1 of Protel, it's like stepping back into
the dark ages. Viewdraw is without question the most cumbersome, unfriendly,
bug-riddled piece of trash I've ever had to struggle with; I have developed
an intense hatred of it and all the garbage apps it's wrapped in. Our layout
specialists are not a whole lot more pleased with the Pads tools either,
although it's better than the schematic capture. Of course, management
doesn't see any need for better tools.

Now off you go, your penance shall be 50 Hail Altium's....

Hi all,
        I think that the paragraph below, in their own words, says it all.
No changes, no significant fixes, the same old bugs, inefficient code and
glorious marketing driven additions that nobody wants. No changes, no
improvements, just the same old crap under a new name. Is this what the
statement means if taken literally, jeeesh, they can't even write good press
releases.
        I find it amazing that Protel not once ever makes any promises to
the users of the product to improve things. Nope can't do that, just
maintain the status quo. Thus we (users) are still working around bugs,
issues and inefficient coding that has existed within the product for 2 - 3
years at least. Give up, there is no hope!
