Why did that cause shock and horror? Quest Software are the folks who make TOAD, a similar tool albeit Windows-only. In fact, Henrik's creation was Quest Software's only real competition. Coincidentally, I was aware that they were trying to recruit Henrik for some time. One of their software developers told me they were looking to hire him when I went to a TOAD user's group meeting in Minneapolis.
So now it seems Quest Software has finally recruited Henrik into their fold. This is a great move for Quest Software and probably a good move for Henrik. Unfortunately, it sucks for the rest of us. What will happen with TORa? Not sure, but a lively discussion has already started on the TORa home page (under discussion forums).
