It's the second-best for me, but then I'm pick enough to actually pay 
for a mail and news client - Turnpike. I'm running TB on my Linux boxes 

Support for Turnpike has effectively ended though, and it won't run in 
64-bit versions of Windows because of a bug that MS apparently aren't 
planning to fix. The people in demon.ip.support.turnpike have been 
debating whether TB3 is the replacement they are looking for. Turnpike 
is one of the two programs that keep me using Windows (the other is MS 
Access) and I'm actively looking for alternatives to both of them so 
that I can drop Windows completely at home.
