Ironically this is pretty close to the reason Mr Martin developed his DOS
based PCB design software to begin with. As a university student/graduate
the Unix based systems available at the time were extremely expensive and
still quite buggy. So he wrote his own. The price/functionality was good
enough to sell commercially.

I have this on good advice from one of his original marketing managers
(Hobart, Tasmania is a very small city).
