In all seriousness, it's not going anywhere and we are stuck with it, sadly it appears to be the way of the world now, "All mouth and no trousers." as my dear beloved Grandma used to say.
Does anyone have any solid links to places in which to write a formal list of complaints, we could all submit some form of list. There are a lot of very well respected names with some real cachet on the Oracle-L list, that must count for something? Occasionally a topic comes up on the Oracle forums about the new NL interface, but it seems to get buried in amongst things like "general chat" or generic RDBMS. We might fine someone to consider some of the points and improve to at least make it useable for techies, who need something fast and reliable.

Digging around some on the new flash site, I decided to go through the 'Communities' to see if there was an additional place to complain there, and I think I see what the intent of the new flash version is.
One of the moderators there says that newer version geared towards "end-users", meaning basically people that don't know what they are doing and are easily impressed by useless graphics.
