Here's a thought. How about when you improve something, it actually makes things easier, or makes things go a little bit faster. Kind of like what broadband did to dial-up. Not so with the WP 3.0 (and higher) version. Ever since I upgraded to the WP 3.0 and higher, the pages and posts literally take FOREVER to cycle through an update. Sometimes they just time out, or kick back a nifty error message that leaves you longing for a downgrade just so you can get something accomplished besides learning how to be more patient.
