Joe,

The last I heard just before Cadence purchased OrCAD, that OrCAD had sold
280,000 seats of OrCAD capture. 

Now Cadence has supposedly sent all OrCAD development off to India, but I
have not seen any new features since the Cadence acquisition. The couple of
new features that Cadence introduced in OrCAD V10 were already created when
the acquisition took place, they just held back on the implementation so it
would look like Cadence is developing the software.

Mike,

I doubt that PADS schematic can overtake anything....end comment

With regard to Orcad yes in it's day (DOS) it was the absolute best, hands
down. Something happened when it went to Windows then Cadence bought them
and well..
