    I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation for PCB design software. This would be for low volume prototyping, nothing fancy, maybe one step above hobbyist level. Any suggestions?

    I have used FreePCB professionally, but I have read forums for geda and
    some other tools. FreePCB has a basic UI that is not hard to learn.
    There are two or three concepts you need to learn to use it effectively,
    but that is not really hard. Best of all, there is a very supportive
    user community which you can rely on.

    Be sure to read the forum post for new users before starting. It will
    help get over the initial rough spots.

    What do you plan to use for schematic capture?

    I haven't tried yet, but Farnell (element14) is now offering PCB boards
    in 1-2 days via EuroCircuits http://www.element14.com/pcbservices.
    Anyone has some input on their service?
