MATE Desktop Environment
"The MATE Desktop Environment is the continuation of GNOME 2. It provides an intuitive and attractive desktop environment using traditional metaphors for Linux and other Unix-like operating systems.
MATE is under active development to add support for new technologies while preserving a traditional desktop experience." Source: Mate homepage
Mate is simple to use. You can place the panel on each side. So you can get the look and feel of
- pure MATE - panel on top
- GNOME 3 - panel on the left
- place a panel on the bottom like KDE, XFCE or Cinnamon
- or you chose a additional panel for example on the left for application starters.
You may also place some starters on the desktop. It is all possible.
