Hey there !

I have some noobs questions. First, when Gnome devs killed Gnome 2 to give birth to Gnome 3, AKA Satan-Himself-yes-i-m-serious-I-ll-kill-your-love-for-linux-based-operating-systems, I switched to KDE. As excpected, blood came out of my eyes and nose. So I tried Mate but it was young and had some youth issues (asking for a car, taking drugs, stuffs like that, you know how they are...). Anyway, I thought it will never be abble to be as cool as Gnome 2. I tried Cinnamon, wich is quiet nice I have to say, but a pain in the ass for customization. And then, I went back to Windows.
Several years later, well, today, I saw a video of ubuntu Mate 18.04. WTF IS THIS AWESOMNESS ???? I need that stuff right now !!!
But (yes, I talk to much) how do we customize it ? Long time ago, in a far far memory, I used to go on and downloaded Gnome 2 theme, icons sets, and voil脿. But with mate, what is the good way to get a beautiful theme ? What kind of theme do I have to get ? gtk-2 themes ? gtk-3 ? None of that ?
I'm downloading Ubuntu mate as I type (I've got a slow connection, sorry guys), and I'd love to customize it as soon as it's installed.
Anyone could help ?

Thank you. Peace, Love, Hummus <3

Good morning, people!! Thanks to the team for Ubuntu MATE (all versions are great).
Any news about when the newer Raspberry-Pi version is going to be available?

Im Glad Ubuntu Mate exists, and is gaining popularity.
I wasn't a fan of the new menu structure in 18.04, so I regressed to version 16.04. In mate-tweak I was unable to restore the look of version 16.04, which more closely matched the gnome2 perspective I was familiar with.

If there is a way to get that gnome2, Mate16.04 version look in 18.04, surely I would like to know.

I updated all my 64 bit laptops and desktop with Ubuntu 18.04 , only to install Mate in the end because gnome have become way too bulky. The only system running Ubuntu is an i5 laptop. Is Ubuntu on it's way out?. The new kernel is taking even longer than windows 10 to boot up. What is going on Linux?
