I have to say that I actually like it.  Granted, I've turned off the 

I use an IMAP repository and the performance of TB3 is MUCH better than 
it was in TB2.  No doubt some of this is due to better threading - and 
that is fine by me.  When I hit delete I don't want to stare at TB 
syncing its caches or whatever for 30 seconds.  Note that my server 
itself is fine - if I use a different mail client deletes are almost 
instant.  I don't care if TB needs to thrash as long as it does it in 
the background.

Now, I did read up about the upgrade and turned off the offline indexing 
when I set everything up.  I don't need to have two copies of my maildir 
sitting on my hard drive - especially since this is backed up and I pay 
by the GB for AWS storage.

The only annoying thing is that plugins aren't all migrated yet. 
Enigmail is a big one that isn't ready yet.
