AUGUST 2021 I PCB007 MAGAZINE 91 use old soware. But I'm not sure how much is licensed, to put it politely. So if I had to say, going by the number of jobs, not in dollar vol- ume, I think that over 95% of China's jobs are in Gerber. Shaughnessy: Right. We've seen a lot of updates in the newer formats, ODB++ and especially IPC-2581. But from what I've seen, Gerber re- minds me of Mark Twain's quote, "Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated." Tavernier: Ah, yes. Indeed. Shaughnessy: Well, Gerber certainly has some amazing staying power for being 50 years old and not even designed for this task. Tavernier: Yes, that's why it's still here. And with Gerber X2 and the Gerber Job Editor, you can do anything—if you have the soware, of course. If you work with 10-year-old soware, then you cannot benefit from improvements in any format. Shaughnessy: ank you, Karel. Great talking to you. PCB007 An example of Mandarin project notes as they appear in the Gerber Job Editor.
