Mate is a fork of Gnome2. I use it and like it a

I'm pretty sure it does. When I run GTK apps under FVWM, they actually 
get buttons in the app itself where they belong. Yet another reason 
to run as far away from Gnome as possible.

I am getting so close to pulling the plug on gnome.  Just 
getting too hard to use with a mouse and keyboard.



would like to get back to something close to gnome 2.  
Like I still have on my Centos boxes.






I have MATE running on F18 - and it has a ways to go with

~/.gnome2 as opposed to ~/.gnome(3) user settings. MATE

fails to save workspace settings, fails menu "reorganizations",

uses caja/nautilus inconsistently, semi-fails XDMCP (Cannot

log in remotely-unable to enter password), 'motion' does

not work well on httpd+web browser and so on. There is more

HD bloat (gnome2+gnome3) and it is a performance hog so

a speedy MOBO/CPU/RAM is needed. The look and feel is pretty

good, but it can get ugly sometimes.



I hope MATE & applications catches up to what it was before 
gnome-3.
