revolution has some features I like, plus I considered that the evolution branch is largely dead anyway, revolution is what the devs are working on.
Plus moving to evolution is the same deal, they aren't the same system, can't move between them, so if we had to move to a new cms, I'd move to a more trustworthy one.
I had a lot of problems too with evolution though years ago, I realized I've really always had problems, and those problems were also related to running dev/remote servers and having things fail between the two. But that evolution install died and the client vanished as did their site so I never got to see how it did on upgrades.
I liked revolution when it came out, it had solved some problems that I considered important, but nobody is currently paying me my lost days time and stress and frustration and fear of full failure one of these days. I wish it worked, I truly do, I have zero desire to enter into the terrible learning curve of a new cms, modx in theory did what I wanted, but the practice of their testing and weak code is getting very stressful.
