I once had EWB (release 4 IIRC) installed on my PC, 2 years ago. It took me
3 days to perfectly hate it and definitly uninstall it.
Among all, the schematic tool was the worst I ever seen and the components
library "somewhat" limited and inaccurate.
I was told that it greatly improved over the last releases, but I found it
so bad that I doubt it has reach a good level of usability.
I also consider the usefulness of exporting simulation schematics as board
netlist as nothing more than a marketing argument. Except for the most
simple ones, simulation schematics are often pretty much, if not completely,
different from board schematics.
