MATE Desktop Environment is totally free and everyone involved are volunteers. Please consider donating to the MATE project. It is nice to have the effort we've put into it recognised. Any money raise

Great article, +Swapnil Bhartiya !!!
 
The newly announced Ubuntu MATE 14.04 LTS will appeal to individuals and enterprise customers looking for a lightweight distribution.

hehehe b.coze Ubuntu is not lightweight itself. Canonical/devs try to make something like elephant wit wings. Whatever they do.. this shiet will not fly.

Thinking about going all in on the MATE desktop environment. I've had my eye on it for a while and it just seems to get better and better over time.

Thank you for creating MATE, Stefano. It was perfect for our needs when we started the Distro Astro project.

+Stefano Karapetsas Thanks :) One of the things that I like about MATE is that it seems to get a lot of love almost everywhere, plenty of options out there. I tried Jessie with MATE not long ago and I really appreciated its minimalism and the lack of a large preinstalled software selection.
Thanks for your reply ;)

We recorded a great interview with +Martin Wimpress of the MATE Desktop project for Episode #26 - don't miss it! And also don't miss the opportunity to get your hands on an exclusive Ubuntu MATE T-shirt, which Martin kindly donated to us.

It's a good quality black T (no matter how the photo looks ;), large size, with the Ubuntu Circle of MATEs logo on the front, and subtle Ubuntu MATE detailing on the rear. It's also currently hanging in my wardrobe, unworn, and waiting to be sent to a lucky recipient.

No catches or gimmicks - if you'd like the shirt, just leave a comment below. We'll randomly select a winner before recording the next show, then get in touch privately for your real name and postal address (worldwide).

So if you fancy a piece of exclusive developer team memorabilia, add a comment below. Closing time for entries will be 18:00 UTC on Thursday 23 October. Good luck!
