KiCAD isn't bad; I used to use Eagle a lot, which was also pretty good.
Before that was OrCAD, and before that, Schema--and before that, a
plastic template and a pencil.
If you join the "OldDOSOrcad" Yahoo group, I think they've got a copy of
OrCAD and additional files if you find yourself pining for the old stuff.
Schematics have changed a lot in my experience. There was a time when
drawing wires was important; a lot of schematics today look more like
pin lists then a circuit diagram. Times change.
