You didn't give it an honest try. It does have a couple of frustrating
idiosyncrasies and the documentation is poor but it is far more powerful
than CorelDraw unless Corel can check circuit rules, build a board from
a schematic, check for clearance and overlaps and generate gerber files.
There are all sorts of components in the libraries (a large number of
European brands though) and if you can't find the one you want you can
build your own. I made a device for the home built reed/coil current
sensor in about 5 minutes.
I'm building a 45' cutter in strip/composite. Watch my progress (or lack
there of) at: http://www.rutuonline.com
