Wow, it actually does suck 85% less than SQL Server Management Studio 2005.
When I look up online help, it takes 1 second to start instead of 20.
When I type "Backup Database" in the Look For box it returns me syntax help for (get this) Backup Database for SQL Server, instead of an article about which backup strategies to use for SQL Server Mobile Edition.
The Workbench itself opens and closes in a reasonable amount of time. That in itself is a huge improvement over the old one.
The editing features worked,and they didn't really screw them up any.
Very nicely done.
