And it's important not to write to much useless mails, IOW not only to
criticize that I mentioned two times Arch Linux, while I also was
replying to the content of another mail. Just criticizing Arch and not
to contribute something useful makes it hard to follow the thread, at
least marking the subject as OT would have been appropriated.

That doesn't explain why there is the need to reply to his mail with:

Why? Because it's a good idea to solve the OP's issue?

I often experienced that on *buntu's Xfce Evolution was that
slow/broken, that it was impossible to use. Perhaps it's for GNOME apps
using them on *buntu like that?

If so it must be related to a bad setting, something unneeded is running
or something needed doesn't run, since on distros where you _need_ to
set up everything on your own, something like this unlikely will happen.

If you guys aren't serious, just kidding, than please mark your mails as
jokes. Not everybody is a native English speaker, not everybody has got
the same knowledge, not everybody has got the same sense of good or bad


_Next time when making a joke that looks like a hint and especially when
adding a "+1" only to this joke/hint mark the message as [joke] or with
