Oracle does it again

I am trying to practice RAC upgrade. I installed and configured oracle single node RAC, downloaded and verified the installation requests for 11.2.0 with the reasonable output of cluvfy and proceeded to the installation. The software is now asking for "SCAN addresses". I was barely able to convince my administrator to allocate me an additional address for every RAC node, now I have to go to her and ask for more addresses? WTF?
Oracle 10g RAC was a sheer disaster, plagued by the many bugs (couldn't use multipath, vipca was legendary for being buggy) and the installation was extremely hard. Instead of making a product that would be easy and seamless to install, they have screwed it up to the hilt - again. I am just out of my meeting with the CIO in which I recommended against upgrading to 11g in the foreseeable future. I thought that Oracle will not be able to make a more horrifying disaster than Oracle10g was, but they outdid themselves. I wonder who was the effing idiot that has designed the product. Oracle is definitely going downhill.
