My #1 complaint about Eagle is the lack of intuitiveness. I always find myself re-reading the tutorials every time I want to do something. The autorouting isn't the best, and the part creation feature is just painful.
I asked an EE friend a few weeks ago and he said:
"Castle Creations uses PADS
and another good looking one is Altium designer"
I'm also looking for good Eagle replacement recommendations. If it had all IEEE standard packages already in the library, and an Eagle compatible gerber file creation tool, even better! I also require 3D viewing capabilities . . . it saved me tons of time/money for Axon prototyping.
(Webbot, sorry for the partial thread-jacking
Oh and I just added Easy-PC to the robotics software list
