pros, cons and recent comments
foadsf Simulink Is an alternative to OpenModelica not the whole MATLAB
Spyder (previously known as Pydee) is a free open-source Python development environment providing MATLAB-like features in a simple and light-weighted software, available for Windows XP/Vista/7, GNU/Linux and Mac OS X.
This electronic circuit simulator is highly interactive giving the feeling of playing with real components. It's very helpful for experimentation and visualization. It's a desktop version of the Circuit Simulator.
It is a circuit simulator on a virtual breadboard. it supports virtual components like microcontrollers, TTL, graphical and alphanumerical LCDs and others in addition to virtual instruments and certainly the basic components (resistors, capacitors..).
