Best free? Best at any price? (Got a Cray in the basement?) Best for
hobby use? Best for 90 nm silicon layout?

Let's make two distinctions:

a. Best for hobby use at a reasonable price, say US $ 300.
b. Best for professional use (without taking price in account).

LTSPice from Linear is free and well thought of around the newsgroup.
http://www.linear.com/company/software.jsp

In the low price range, I've been using BeigeBag for years (since they
were selling it on 3.5" floppies in real brown paper bags). They've
recently done a re-write to the codebase for their V5 release and, while
there still are a few rough edges left from the move, it's a good
product. Interoperates with Eagle CAD. http://www.beigebag.com /

Can't help you on the very high end stuff, tho.

SIMetrix SPICE has a good reputation. It's included with the Pulsonix ECAD
software I use.

What exactly do you mean by A/D?

OK, and do you intend to simulate A to D converters or are you looking for
general purpose simulation software?  The best deal out there for general
purpose software is LT Spice (aka SwitcherCad) as it is free and works well.
You can't go wrong trying it.

If you are willing to purchase a high-end tool for IC design, I would
suggest Ansoft Nexxim.
Its new algorithms are about 5 times faster than current tools on the
market.
For example, if you are simulating a PLL netlist for 4 days, you can
get the same transistor-level accurate results in less than a day. The
same holds for difficult simulations that include post-layout
parasitics.

"Best" never exists. What are you trying to do?
