As much as I didn't like the MMC move from Enterprise Manager, I think SSMS was a mistake. It's got too much built in, with hidden non-modal windows getting lost, and a pain to navigate through things.
I'd rather have us move back to separate tools for separate functions.
The window popups are what really bugs me. Plus, when you maximize one window, then close it, SSMS doesn't remember that it was maximized when it was open 1 minute earlier.
I've thought about checking out Toad, but I obviously haven't thought too much about it as I haven't done it yet.
