   No, there's *excellent* free software.  For one, PCB (http:// 
pcb.gpleda.org/) is as good as all but the very best five-digit- 
pricetag commercial stuff I've seen, and it's getting better  
literally every week.  I've done a number of both commercial and  
hobby designs with it, as have many others.
