I've tried OpenCPN and found it very cumbersome. In my experience, it seems to be more attractive to technically interested users. You can play with all sorts of techie things. I assume there is some satisfaction in getting to work. I'm in the point and shoot crowd and highly prefer the Ipad apps. OpenCPN is free, of course.
