The MATE Desktop Environment is the continuation of GNOME 2. It provides an
intuitive and attractive desktop environment using traditional metaphors for
Linux and other Unix-like operating systems.
MATE is under active development to add support for new technologies while
preserving a traditional desktop experience.
This package depends on a very basic set of programs that are necessary to
start a MATE desktop environment session. The set of programs includes the
MATE window manager (Marco), the MATE file manager (Caja), the MATE
control center and a limited set of other obligatory MATE desktop components.
