    this sounds interesting...

    Update:
    We (in my workplace) have switched almost completely to gEDA (gschem, gnetlist), PCB and ngspice. We've been working with this tool set for almost 2 years now, and find that
    I find that it does everything we need - schematic capture, simulations, PCB layout.

    Some body mentioned QCad. It can be an alternative to AutoCAD, not for OrCAD. QCAD is good.I have used it for 2D drafting. For 3D design you have blender

    Now I am evaluating gEDA for schematic editing and PCB layouts. I am trying to find a good forum to discuss the problems. Till now I am not successful.
