Understood - I couldn't agree more. Keep in mind OpenECry's platform is easylanguage supported and free - and their commissions kicked the living hell out of TS... just throwing it out there if you ever are looking for other options.

As I'm starting to do real trades, I'm starting to learn how much Scottrade sucks ass. This is really a platform for kids, who just wanna come in, lose 10-15K and leave the trading world. There is never shares to short for volital stocks, the platform is semi 1902 style, and the customer service is 0. I e-mailed them something, and haven't received anything for over 3 days.
I've been playing with Think or Swim, but their platform is so HARD to use. Simply so much stuff, you'd really need a year just to master the platform, and I'm scared to trade using their platform. I'm scared, a simple user error will cost me money. (Not putting in the right order etc...)

^^ThinkorSwim is very hard to learn I will admit. It is very good but i am actively looking for new software that is easier to use....talk about a pain in the ass.
I have accounts TD Ameritrade, OptionsXpress, and Wedbush Morgan

I honestly don't know how people use TS to trade. I even watched their video tutorial for each section and I can barely do a simple short, and simple long. Been paper trading with it, just to get comfortable, but simply out of it. I don't think I'd ever ad any money to it.
