    (Just chiming in) It's a pain to *have* to have it, even if you
don't use it.  Try sometime, removing all the evolution stuff, see how
quick it takes to be pulling out "ubuntu-desktop", too.  Everything else
(though I haven't tried Gnome versus KDE since coming to Ubuntu) is one
way or the other...you can yank vi OR Emacs....or have them both.

    If it were something that didn't crash often, or give grief every
year, enough to remove it and switch back to Thunderbird again, it
wouldn't be such a concern...

    Their intent was good...and Gnome's acceptance of it was
strong...but until it gets, and stays more stable, it's just annoying.
