Bill,

I just talked to Mentor Graphics PADS division and they say that since the
1st release of PADS Software in 1985 they have logged 85,000 licenses.
PowerLogic (schematic) and PowerPCB (layout) are separate licenses. 

There are currently 18,000 PADS-PowerPCB seats on yearly maintenance. 

It's my personal guess that there are about 35,000 PADS-PowerPCB seats in
use. There are many people using old licenses that are not on yearly
maintenance due to financial hardships over the past 4 years.

I wonder just how many licensed seats there are of Protel in the world....
is that published anywhere? 
Also I wonder if Pads has published the same info? 

I didn't participate in the poll so it's at least off by one. 
LOL...

I would venture to say Protel may have more seats that Pads... but they are
mostly not in the Southwest of the U.S.

How about it Altium... how many active seats of Protel are there?
