Well, that is generally the opinion I hold, but I will admit that in the latest version it seemed a bit better. It takes a while getting used to some of its nuances, but I once I learned them, I was able to actually get stuff done without the tool being in the way, which is the important thing.
Nevermind the UI - I learned the hard way that one thing you do NOT want to do is rely on Toad to compile packages/procs... I worked a contract a few years back at which I was going back and forth between Toad and SQL*Plus (Toad for the GUI, SQL*Plus for robustness) and at some point I discovered that you CANNOT rely on Toad to fully compile every time; it sometimes leaves packages in this stupid half-compiled nether-nether state. It would say that it compiled without error but then at runtime I was getting all sorts of squirrely behavior. FFS.
