I recently stumbled across this blog post. The writer talks fervently (a small play of words if you translate his avatar from German to English) about the open-ness of KiCAD, especially about the open-ness of the design files. In this case the author puts a very strong emphasis on cross-platform and cross-application portability – or lack thereof – of the ‘design’ itself.
What do You think of it?
To keep the discussion centralized, if one should start, please post comments to his blog.
