Ubuntu MATE

ubuntu mate, ubuntu mate download
Ubuntu MATE is a free and open-source Linux distribution and an official derivative of Ubuntu Its main differentiation from Ubuntu is that it uses the MATE desktop environment as its default user interface, based on GNOME 2 which was used for Ubuntu versions prior to 1104, instead of the Unity graphical shell that is the default user interface for the Ubuntu desktop1

The Ubuntu MATE project was founded by Martin Wimpress and Alan Pope2 and began as an unofficial derivative of Ubuntu, using an Ubuntu 1410 base for its first release;3 a 1404 LTS release followed shortly4 As of February 2015, Ubuntu MATE gained the official Ubuntu flavour status from Canonical Ltd as per the release of 1504 Beta 156 In addition to IA-32 and x86-64 which were the initial supported platforms, Ubuntu MATE also supports PowerPC and ARMv7 on the Raspberry Pi 2 and 37

In April 2015, Ubuntu MATE announced a partnership with British computer reseller Entroware, enabling Entroware customers to purchase desktop and laptop computers with Ubuntu MATE preinstalled with full support8 Several other hardware deals were announced later

In a May 2016 review Jesse Smith of DistroWatch concluded, "despite my initial problems getting Ubuntu MATE installed and running smoothly, I came away with a positive view of the distribution The project is providing a very friendly desktop experience that requires few hardware resources by modern standards I also want to tip my hat to the default theme used on Ubuntu MATE"16
