I find this article interesting as it puts in perspective the market that Altium is actually targeting.
For people like myself who build a small number of PCB's with less than 500 components with a mixture of digital and analog and power on the one board, the product is a pain in the neck.
Finding components which you would expect in a product like this to be fairly easy and the core of the product is just a waste of time.
The reality is that you want to do something you make your own library of components and go from there.
Build or download components from someone else who has spent the time to make and model them but rarely from Altium.
Try and find a resistor or diode or op amp in the libraries, good luck.
I hope any future product addresses this significant shortcoming.

Hi little guy. That article must have been written around or before 2008, back when Altium had a Nexar named product and Mr Martin was still CEO. The good news is Altium have moved on from thinking FPGA are going to rule the world. In the last few years, they have been back on track, servicing the current customer needs. PCB and Schematic tools. On top of that, the package price is much lower now than it was when the article was written.

EDACafe, how about placing a publishing date on the page ?
