Well if they do it as a business, then what stops them from just pirating the whole thing right now? Legally there is no difference between hacking you license and just faking it entirely.

But I've never heard of any business which uses hacked scopes.

I have hacked my Agilent 54846B. It did run Linux with Openoffice.
OK, running is not the right word. It crawled.

Uky:
The Allegro (OrCAD) PCB Editor can be executed under both Windows and Linux.
(Separate downloads though) The original Cadence Schematic tool is Concept HDL
which also can be executed under Linux.

The Schematic Editor, old OrCAD "Capture" runs under Windows only.

Cadence released a new schematic tool a few years ago "System Capture".

Looks nice but asking for their strategy, if they intend to replace the old
OrCAD capture and Concept HDL tool with the new one has remained unanswered.
Recently, Cadence added a library converter from .OLB so I guess that
something is in the making.

Cadence also advertised a new product "something" but if it is a new
version 17.4+ (?) or a rebundle of a lot of options I cannot say.

KiCad might appear to offer similar functionaly to Altium if all you ever do is fairly basic to mid level boards. But if you do very complex mid to higher end stuff, Altium is still streets ahead.

That reminds me of the people who say that LibreOffice is a complete substitute for MS Office, or that GIMP and Inkscape can replace Photoshop and Illustrator: they have no clue what professional use is, and that the open source apps don’t even begin to cover the specialized features professionals need. They’re perfectly adequate for everyday use in many cases, just not true pro use.

This isn’t to say that open source desktop apps can’t be best-in-class, but IMHO they rarely are, not in functionality, and most certainly not in usability. Quite different from the server stuff, where open source has managed to produce truly outstanding software, just to list one example.

LibreOffice is just as good as MS Office. The problem is they both suck, and need huge amounts of work to make them truly fit for purpose.
