Looks spectacular! I haven't tinkered with it much, excepting Gnome2 in CentOS. I'll have to give it a spin, if for nothing else, a sense of nostalgia.

I really recommend it, it feels compact, snappy, all things nicely integrated. Of course I don't know yet (!) how gtk3 applications will behave after a few upgrade cycles :)

Of course, now Bacon is on the herbs. I still use it as my only DE besides my WMs.

I modified env-info to show also the DE.

Edit: Of course I prefer using urxvt instead of mate-terminal and with this you can make it use a nice icon instead of the generic one.
Put this line into your .Xresources file but with the right path to your icon. I use stock Faenza:

Code: Select all

URxvt.iconFile: /usr/share/icons/Faenza/apps/scalable/terminal.svg

Because I cannot compete with Dkeg on WM setups let me post the bloat.

Finally a German scrot, looks good! Audacious blends in well with the monochrome style!

^ Very nice low consumption there Jules. 2015 will take me to a bloat 64bit, with VM for your lovely 486 etc grills. I have always installed on bare metal, but alas less time next year. I have been thinking of MATE actually compared to Cinnamon....hmm.... MATE it is then :D

cheers

Wow Jules. Look at that RAM usage, like Xfce/LXDE and surely less than Munchbag by default.

Thanks brothers! Yeah, MATE is the DE, if there's any question. Didn't break with gtk3 (yet), so it seems like a safe alternative if you use the built-in productivity tools. And it's a perfect DE for those who just join Linux.

Wow Mate is quite a efficient DE and looks even better than Xfce :D

^ This. I don't remember seening Ubuntu MATE when I started out my Linux journey, but I have certainly recommended it to the uninitiated who are interested in tinkering with Linus Torvald's masterpiece. A friend who is a Go fanatic recently moved to the distro from OS X and has been loving the Lime Text Editor that was mentioned in /usr/bin back in August. His MacBook is now many times more efficient memory wise than Yosemite, needless to say :D

Thanks frank. I don't like the GTK and wallpaper - it's a bit ugly because my GF found Numix too blocky (she's right). As for RAM, removing the date/weather applet makes it slip below 80MB. mate-panel's applets are quite heavy.

MB, nice. Will you need to replace QQ after this year? I was curious what it was, and looking it up, read will shut down end of 2014.
Not surprising some of the applets can be blood suckers.

Thanks Drew! A good step is to let Ceni do the network-manager stuff, this saves at least 20 MB.

The QQ story is a long one - it's actually a fork off OICQ. They had a Linux version in 2008 (IIRC), but didn't continue working on it. There were plugins for Pidgin, but every few months QQ has changed the login procedure. The QQ on the desktop is a link to w.qq.com, their "Smart" version which is really just text chat and rudimentary file transfer. They had a full-feat WebQQ version, I think that's the one that goes bye-bye soon. I am not sure. It's there if my worse half wants to talk bullshit with her friends. Anyway, Android has conquered the desktop market ;) so they mostly use Tencent's WeChat here in China (which integrates QQ and replaces some of their services).

I have howmslice installed on a partition, but I am still working to make it look good and pretty (forgive the engrish) and therefore still spending much of my time in my Fedora 21 install. I had fairly negative views of the Red Hat-based project and tended to have a disregard for yum, but for the most part that has now been dispelled. It isn't actually half-bad, at least compared to some of the other distros that I have tried. It seems to be a little less "rice" friendly than Debian or Arch and I am still working on getting mpd up and running w/o root privileges and getting to recognize my ~/Music directory, but MATE's Audacious has served me surprisingly well. Anyhow, here is a scrot :D

P.S. I have been using neep but just switched to terminus, as I like the feel a little better.
