Project for managing Ubuntu MATE.

A community developed Ubuntu based operating system that beautifully integrates the MATE desktop.

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.
    * Recreate the halcyon days of Ubuntu for users who prefer a traditional desktop metaphor.
    * 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.
