Not only hobbyist, please... we build more than ~1000 units with gerbers
generated by pcbnew (mostly 2 and 4 layer stuff) but we have no money
for 'big vendors'; and most low cost cads (to say some names: eagle and
ares) are piles of junk. Also not necessarily big vendors make good
products... if you look around the net EE (expedition express) is
nicknamed Endless Errors :D
