Haha, you probably got me wrong. I never even tried out KiCAD - because 
I had no idea why I should try out something else in the moment.

I am not sure. I have read about no tight coupling between schematic and 
board. That's a no-go for me.

It's a well known disaster for newcomers. Many completely un-logic 
aspects. Evil pitfalls in the schematic editor. The strangest copy and 
paste mechanisms.
But... If you are throgh that. And have already forgotten how 
frustrating Eagle's UI once was... everything is fine then.
I really love the console input on Eagle. I can do many things by just 
typing in commands. Normal work does not involve pulldown menus.

Wen I first encountered eagle it was running under DOS. No windows. 
Don't remember if there was a schematic editor. And not much to click.
