Many WordPress.com users don’t know their sites are guinea pig sites that new WordPress software upgrades are tested on.

I love the flyout menus when a menu is collapsed. However, I hate that I can’t have multiple menus expanded at once. It makes working in the admin extremely slow. That’s really my only gripe. — Justin Tadlock
The issue for some will be that the option to keep menu items of our choice open will disappear. I’m preparing in advance by operating with only one sub-menu item at a time and I’m not liking it. See also: Admin menu doesn’t expand/collapse in 3.3 beta 1. Why? (78 posts)
