I know.  I was making the point about customising.  I hadn't bothered
customising Evolution, because I dislike having to tweak the wazoo out
of each new installation.  Be that half a dozen applications, or lots
and lots of desktop of options (such as with KDE).

I've usually found the Gnome defaults to be reasonably good, with the
exception of the fonts all being a bit too big.  Leaving me with very
few things to tweak on a Gnome desktop (replace the background, set the
fonts, and maybe the screen resolution if the system picks an oddball
one from the available choices).

KDE, on the other hand, has a gazillion and one things to fiddle with,
and I dislike many of the defaults.  KDE sits up there with Windows,
with endless faffing around with the desktop, rather than actually
making use of the computer to do work.

Me too, but I had one of those moments, and decided to fiddle around.
