Mate Desktop Environment: The GNOME2 Fork

While radical changes in GNOME3 is still stumbling across different kinds of reactions from its users, the GNOME2 fork has arrived – Mate Desktop Environment. I personally liked some concepts in GNOME3, but overall the new version does no good for me. I still prefer Xfce or a tiling window manager for most of my work. I can achieve a better balance of a productive, efficient and pretty desktop. Mate can show us if the old GNOME2 concepts can evolve in a different direction.
