Sense or aosp?
Well i have been thinking about doing a new rom for my EVO and i am not sure of what the differences are between sense and aosp. I used to used cm7 for my moto droid and i want to try a different rom. I don't care if the rom has 4g because it's not available anywhere near me. I also am curious which backup tool would work best so i don't lose my angry birds progress ;-)

It's just personal choice. I am really digging on the r3chargeD Sense 3.0 ROM right now, but when I get sick of it, I'll flash to an AOSP and use their scenes, or one of the launchers to switch it up, or both. Everything is working on the Sense 3,0 ROM, so that's a huge plus. Netflix, WiFi, FF Camera, SMS, MMS, 4G, 3G, etc...AND the battery life is great.

Re: Sense or aosp?
Like stated above, choosing which one to run is a personal choice.
The difference between the two is Sense is a UI built into the core of Android. Causing it to increase in size and tries to give a better look for the end user. AOSP is the code base all roms are started from and has zero bloat from manufacturers and carriers. This is why it is so smaller in size. While the stock UI isn't as nice looking there is less to slow down the system.
As for backing up your apps, you can use titanium backup or mybackup root. One thing I need to say about titanium backup. Don't backup system apps. If you back these up and then switch to an aosp rom you will get in a bootloop. Just backup your apps from 3rd parties or the market. I think there is a setting you can click for this in the settings. mybackup root from the start will do only the apps you downloaded. In the settings there is an option for system apps, but you don't need it. Wish TB did this as there has been many people that have done this and got into a bootloop.

You could use a file explorer or mount your SD to the computer andndelete the file off that way.
