Ubuntu MATE 191 alternatives | Website
Ubuntu Mate is a stable, easy-to-use operating system with a configurable desktop environment. Ideal for those who want the most out of their desktops, laptops and netbooks and prefer a traditional desktop metaphor. With modest hardware requirements it is suitable for modern workstations and older hardware alike.
Ubuntu Mate has a number of guiding objectives and goals.
-Accessible to all, regardless of language and physical ability.
-Increase both Ubuntu and MATE Desktop user adoption.
-Ubuntu alternative for computers that aren't powerful enough to run a composited desktop.
-First choice Ubuntu platform for remote workstation solutions such as LTSP and X2Go.
-Restore the halcyon days of Ubuntu before Unity was introduced.
-Use themes and artwork similar to Ubuntu so that Ubuntu Mate is immediately familiar.
-When possible contribute to Debian so both the Debian and Ubuntu communities benefit.
-Package selection will favour functionality and stability over lightness and whimsy.
-Provide a refuge for Linux users who prefer a traditional desktop metaphor.
-Get adopted as an official Ubuntu "flavour".
