GRRRRRR at evolution. Sorry to have to complain about this, but 
honestly! I've never known a program with so many dependencies almost 
all of which are highly version sensitive. It takes a half day to 
compile, and then still won't work because of said fussy dependencies 
and because autoconf doesn't bother to tell you that 6 hours later 
the compile is going to spit the dummy. GRRRR!

Well there's counter-strike... and browser testing. Errrr... oh yea, 
and you can usually get binaries for apps unlike several *nix 
products (like GRRRRR GRRRRR evolution GRRRR; although that's not 
often such a problem).
