For better or worse, Toad for Oracle is a Winders product. Bert Scalzo does have a blog on running the freeware version under wine, if that's enough:

While I'm not an Apple fan (I loathe being locked in to a single source), I found it very interesting that the Tom Kyte and Company's Real World Performance Tour was run from at least a few Macs. And Roy Swonger's 11g Upgrade seminar (which was very good) I was at last week was presented on his Mac as well.

"The faces of Oracle Corporation themselves use Macs in presenting and demonstrating their own products. The implication is clearly a direction in Oracle, and one that we as a customer must embrace."

If you can't dazzle 'em with brilliance...
