Oracle documentation - you think we have it bad.

I'm researching some comparisons between Oracle and SQL Server to counter a crib sheet an Oracle DBA has knocked up (more on that), for instance what is the equiv of a tablespace or system trigger in SQL Server.

Looking at SQL Server books online and the MSDN online version of bol -> http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms130214.aspx we have a nice tree structure to our left that greatly assists navigation and finding and reading stuff, it's fairly structured. 

Oracle, what a pain; the equiv of the tree is here: http://www.oracle.com/pls/db111/show_mindex, click on T say and it gives you another page (http://www.oracle.com/pls/db111/master_index?letter=t); very intuitive (not).

I often winge about bol but looking at the competitor equivalent I sigh with relief.

You think Oracle is bad you should try SAP.  That feel like its designed not to tell you anything.
