In the article number 7. The author wrote this app is free but it is not.

For viewing Gerber files I recommend GC-Prevue from www.graphicode.com.  It is a free Gerber file viewer.  They also have other more-capable purchasable tools.

Add QUCS to the Free Design Tools

Quite Universal Circuit Simulator (QUCS) is a great little Spice-like open-source tool that runs quickly, has a wide range of components, rather intuitie interface (but a so-so manual), and will execute S-parameter analysis. Available at qucs.sourceforge.net/.

I've used Eureqa by www.nutonian.com, sounds similar.  There's a useful but limited free version.

I have tried FreePCB couple of times, it is not bad for most projects with 16 layers or less. Some features I wish it had are viewing Gerber files, import/export of DXF files and print capability!

What is the basis of this ranking?

Is this ranking based on a survey of engineers? If so, what is the size of the sample and how was the sample chosen?

:-)  Yes, it can be a rare commodity when engineers interact with non-engineers!  Oh, well, c'est la vie!

I cannot disagree.  I suppose I've been lucky a lot of the time; I usually have the opportunity to insist that things are done properly.  I don't take that for granted. ;)
