Electronic – Software suggestions for electronic simulations

power electronicsspice

I am a beginner in EE engineering and want to use a software where I can analyze signals or even motor speeds, power electronics ect. But the Spice programs looks so boring and detailed for me. Maybe it is because I'm new.
Is there an interactive easier software where I can for example feel like I am really using an oscilloscope on the screen?
I would appreciate your suggestions.

Renan hit most of the big ones. I like to use this site when I want to throw together a quick circuit. It lets you see the scope in real time and is pretty intuitive, not to mention web based. However, it's no substitute for a real simulation package.
