MATE Desktop

Traditional desktop with modern improvements

MATE is a fork of GNOME 2 which was deprecated to make way for GNOME 3 development. It continues that long tradition of providing an intuitive and attractive desktop environment, but brings a much needed overhaul in both back and front-end functionality.
