Ubuntu MATE Flavor Could Arrive Soon, Prototype Looks Great Already

The Ubuntu distribution features numerous flavors, like KDE, Xfce, and LXDE, but not all the major desktop environments are used. It looks like a new one is brewing, based on MATE. It turns out that the GNOME 2 fans might be in luck. Martin Wimpress, a MATE Desktop team member, took it upon himself to make an Ubuntu prototype featuring MATE, which greatly resembles the old style used by Canonical until 2011.
