What in particular do you find "frustrating"?  It's kinda hard to give
advice given only non-specific grumbling...

In the case of DrScheme, you might want to consider setting the "Language
Level" very high, say, either "Full Scheme" or even "Graphical Full Scheme
(MrEd) Custom" with whichever additional tweaks make you happy.

Or if you don't like the GUI, just run MzScheme itself in a shell window
(which is what I mostly do... but then, shell windows under Unix are much
friendlier than under MS Windows).
