I usually stay out of such conversations, because they quickly descend into
the whole "If you don't like how this and that is done, write a new one/send
me a patch." I do enjoy Evolution, I used it at the office for quite awhile.
I actually had my partners comment on how my performance had improved. 

But as Evolution progressed through the releases it began to not work on my
OS of choice FreeBSD. (Disclaimer: This is not a play for an advocacy
discussion of either FreeBSD or Linux, so please if you feel the need reply
to me directly or take it to the proper forum.) And I went about my way.

Yet I have had the time to help the maintainer of /usr/ports/mail/evolution
fix the problems, so I cannot complain that loudly.
