Linux Mint 13 Maya with MATE desktop review

Filed under
Linux

All right, time for another Mint Maya review. With Cinnamon for desktop, it was a simple and quite perfect 10/10 grade, the highest accolade you can score. Worked fabulously, elegance, style and speed combined into an intuitive, fully functional formula for the desktop user. All you could wish for and then some.

MATE is the second official desktop interface offered with the spring release, the team having some trouble deciding which one would suit their users better, the more conservative MATE, which is a rather accurate Gnome 2 clone, or the more modern and sleek Cinnamon. In my first round, I selected Cinnamon, and now we will see what MATE can do. This review will be significantly shorter, but I still believe you will find the info useful.
