I've used EAGLE for about ten years. I strongly agree with what
NeonJohn wrote below. I don't know if it is still the case, but when I
started using EAGLE all of the library parts were on metric spacing
(including DIPs and SMDs). This causes all sorts of headaches when
doing a layout on inch spacing; traces don't meet the pads. I ended up
creating my own libraries using the EAGLE libraries as a guide. I had
one main library (1_main.lbr) for standard parts and additional
libraries of specialized parts for each project.
