internetling.com: The freedom which FOSS gives us, enables everyone with a specific goal in their mind to create their own Linux distro. Most of the time, the goals/philosophy are cool and interesting, but it often happens that the “product” of the project, the one that should take you to the creator’s goal, turns out to be less than nothing.

Ubuntu MATE 17.10 is a solid release with a few minor caveats about the Mutiny layout. The Traditional MATE layout is very nice, but Mutiny still needs some work. For users who want the classic GNOME 2 look-and-feel, Ubuntu MATE is an excellent choice.
