 +===== Evolution =====
 +Evolution is a mail/​calendar suite, and can be a very useful tool, if you use it. Unfortunately,​ a lot of programs are started in each user session, even if you don't need them, or even if you have never used evolution. These programs don'rt show up in the usual sesson program dialogs, but from the commandline it is possible to disable them:
 +
 +  systemctl --user daemon-reload
 +  systemctl --user disable --now evolution-source-registry
 +  systemctl --user disable --now evolution-calendar-factory
 +  systemctl --user disable --now evolution-addressbook-factory
