Product Description

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.

Objectives

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".
