The symbols package included with the deluxe version has library parts for common CMOS and TTL chips, gates, etc. There's also PCB layout symbols, such as DIP holes/pads, and all that.
I laid out a board for a checmical etch at home. It's nowhere near an actual EDA software package... No autorouter, no link between schematic and layout symbols (I did them as completely separate drawings)... but it is possible to design a schematic, lay it out, and etch it, using only TC for software.
If you're the type who doesn't want to learn new software, it's nice that it's there, but aside from my one expirament/excercise, not something I am going to revisit.
I am sure there's someone with a program to convert DXF or PDF or something to a single GERBER layer. Now that Ruby is a scripting option, we may see native gerber output, but I am pretty disappointed that Ruby scripting isn't in the "affordable" range of Turbocad (deluxe or lower).
