Yes. (in my opinion)

pro:
ASCII design files
ASCII library
module capable
asymetrical components ( a 1000pin comp can be splitted into 10 100pin symbols) will work very well (they're not supported with the symbol creator, but a good text editor will help more than the symbol creator...)

cons:
OrCAD.. tried to use it... but the UI was very strange and the binary compiled library and schematics are unable to put our own tools in top of this tool.

Tobs.

Dear Long

Orcad in PSD 14XXX very easy to use, If U want to built a component with 1000 pins or more, it's ok. but notice that, when built symbol in Orcad, Pin name have different, not the same name, after that U can export to Allegro netlist, everything is very nice.

Best Regards

Concat

Well i dont think cadence will terminate OrCAD as it is one of the industry standards.
If fact a new release is about to be released in apr-june ( OrCAD 10.0 )...

As fara as i know Concept is very bad in terms of usebility..
