Question running pcb design software in linux??


i just want to ask, if there's a way to run PCB layout such as "zuken cr 5000, or cadstar, or even autocadd? we are highly in need of a stable distribution like mandrake that we can depend in our office. btw im currently using mandrake 9.2, and im enjoying it!

keep up the good work guys!

Found an article googling: http://www.cadinfo.net/editorial/linux-cad.htm
author mentions he's using Mandrake in second part: http://www.cadinfo.net/editorial/linux-cad2.htm

If none of the native Linux CAD apps are beefy enough for you then WINE might be of help. This guy apparenty got AutoCAD 2000 working with it: http://pages.sbcglobal.net/mycroft/linux/index.html

Mentor Graphics is due out the end of March this year. The company I work for is planning on switching from Unix Main frames to Linux. We tried the windows version but found it to be a piece of crap.

Well will it be open source. Mentor was always expensive.

I have old Criterion software which I still run on windoze and wish that was available on Linux.

Anyone, heard of Criterion from Aptos?

No still closed source. If you already running it on a Unix main frame thier isn't supposed to be a cost difference. I really don't care if it's closed source as long as it works like it supposed to. Why does eveyone hear Linux and automaticly expert all software for it to be free? As long as the software you need work's and it's config files are in ascii who cares is it's closed source.
