MATE Desktop is based on GNOME 2 and provides an intuitive and attractive 
desktop to Linux users who seek a simple, easy to use traditional interface. 

== Detailed description ==
MATE is a traditional Gnome 2 like desktop user interface. Many users have 
expressed interest in this feature since Fedora 15 in which Fedora was 
switched from Gnome 2 to Gnome 3.

For the advanced user that doesn't want a cutting edge desktop and just wants 
to keep it simple this is perfect for them.

The popularity of MATE Desktop is very high. It is one of the 2 choices of 
DE's for Linux Mint which is one of the most popular Linux distros out right
