Amen to the considerations of 'correctness'!
Another favorite (is it a screwy SI concept?): "But it solves Maxwell's
equations, it has to be correct. Right?" (reference to the absolute
accuracy of field solvers regardless of measured performance. Note: not
a slam on field solvers, just in the way some are employed)

BTW, speaking as an (apparent) bellweather of the industry (though these
comments are my own, and do not represent the opinions of my employer),
I have used a number of the tools mentioned with little consideration to
whether they are behavioral, or spice-like, or exhibit spicy behavior.
My primary concerns have been my experience with the tool, my confidence
in the tool, and the ease with which I can accomplish my objectives with
the tool.

Admittedly I do continue to use a small assortment of tools because I
have not found the single magic elixir that will solve ALL of my SI
problems. If there is such a single tool, whether it be IBIS or spice,
please let me know and I will do what I can to cut a PO for 100
licenses.

Cheers,

-Brett
