Making CFD More Usable for the Masses

Help Desk pockets writes I'm currently using CosmosFloworks, with some aggravation. Have reviewed and demo'ed CFX, and have found it to be at the other extreme - a much more "Cadillac" model of CFD software (lots of variables may be set), however it's not nearly as User-friendly as Ansys Workbench or Solidworks (or the aforementioned FWx).

I'm aware that there are many CFD-code products in the marketplace; not looking for a shot-gun approach to the market, just some User-based comments (+ or -; it's worth it to know what not to demo) on CFD product.

Since Floworks (one extreme) seems to be fairly bug-ridden and annoying with its alert messages, and CFX seems to be more for the full-time Analyst, can anyone suggest other CFD packages that might fall in between these two products for a) ease of use, AND b) code stability and capability?

It would be worthwhile to know if many are using these products anyway and their monthly/annual usage of the tool(s)."
