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 installs the standard set of applications that are part of the official MATE release. It also suggests a few non-MATE standard desktop applications like an internet browser, a mail reader and a network management applet.
