How am I going to explain to the children why there is a program in Ubuntu CE called Evolution which has a leering monkey as a mascot? Please remove Evolution from our god-loving desktops.

    The monkey was so small on the website...oh well, it's still a good program.

    If you're really worried that seeing the NAME of a MAIL PROGRAM in a MENU (gasp!) will prevent you from effectively brainwashing your children, you can uninstall Evolution and install something else. Good job cathing the efforts of the Evil Satanist Conspiracy to infiltrate your home and teach your children questionable doctrines.

    Maintaining your computer is your job, not the job of the developers. Judging by the responses of your coreligionists, even people in ideological agreement with you rarely object to the simple presence of the program, but if it bothers you, you should remove it. Nowhere does the Ubuntu site promise that Ubuntu is a Magic Friendly Jesus Happy Fuzzy Bunny operating system.

    Some people find your insistance that the default settings for an operating system match your ideological beliefs to be just as offensive as you find the name of Evolution.

    Nope. But OP, feel free to remove Evolution if you feel that it could actually have any long term effects on the education of your children, however note that this will remove ubuntu-desktop which could damage future updates/upgrades.
