I'm a rank amateur that would like to begin learning a simulation package to aid my understand of basic electronics. I have spent a great deal of time searching the archives, and reading comments on sim software, and decided I would like to go with either LT Spice or Visual Spice. Right now I can get Visual Spice Advanced for $98. Would it be worth it to me in the long run, or should I just go with LT Spice since it's free. If it's likely I would want to upgrade someday, I'd rather spend the money to begin with, and avoid the learning curve. But the what are the odds I would ever outgrow LT Spice?
Thanks for your thoughts guys, I really appreciate it,
