OpenIndiana Operating System Gets MATE 1.14 Desktop Environment, New ISOs

It’s been a long time since we wrote something here about the OpenIndiana project, which apparently is still being actively developed and receives some of the newest GNU and Open Source technologies, such as the MATE 1.14 desktop environment, for which the development team created a special meta-package to ease the entire installation process. But it looks like there’s a small conflict with the GNOME 2 desktop. If you don’t have time to install the MATE 1.14 desktop environment on your OpenIndiana operating system, you can at least help the team test the Live ISO and USB images they’ve prepared with MATE as default graphical interface. They are available for download right now from http://dlc-int.openindiana.org/hipster/20160816/, along with the Minimal, Text, and GUI (with GNOME 2) ISO/USB images.
