well maybe some of the pespi (orcad ) drinkers might forget about 
putting it in their mouth and discover a whole new taste that they 
actually might like . Maybe even this way : orcad based comapny has a 
group of protel designer that imports the orcad files , wraps em up and 
spits em back out to orcad.  With the ease of work of protel  compared 
to orcad and cadences hefty priced support ,it wont be long before orcad 
flies out the window in lots of companies. they would just keep one copy 
of the schematic to distribute the schematics , and it wouldn't be long 
before they would switch over to protels format.

Cadence is not interested in supporting their customers whatsoever. ( we 
actually buy millions of $ of software form cadence a year for our chip 
design , so you would think they would put in some extra effort : nope ) 
I just had a long dicussion with them. When i told them that i was 
interested of converting the entire group over to orcad they immediately 
told me : don't use orcad , go for the nice higher ended pcb tool ( at 
like 10 times the price with a yearly leasing fee) , and the other 
schematic tool. and then you can pay us to support you with the linking 
up of the code and library creation so you don't have to do this.

yeah right. that ain't gonna happen anytime soon . not in the current 
state of the economy. Anyway , when i am designing something i want it 
to move forward and not be tied up because of 25 clueless support people 
on the other side of the phone trying to figure out what it is i want.

Protel 4 ever !
