Most low-level bugs at this point in time are extremely narrow, it is
unreasonable to expect the world to jump on them when they harm 0.0001%
of the universe.

The same occurs in evolution. Just because it works well for you it does 
not mean it's  working well.
I can tell you that performance and usability degraded over time.
but not for most people.  My experience is that Evolution has become
more stable and more usable over the last few releases.  And yes, it has
become faster and more responsive.

Exactly, it has gotten faster and MUCH more stable.   Some component may
have broken, or something degraded, but "Evolution" has done neither.

To be honest most of the grouching about the stability and speed of Evo
seems to be coming from Ubuntu users
