5 Reasons To Use Ubuntu MATE

5 reasons to use Ubuntu MATE. I have contributed both in ideas and in the past, financially to Ubuntu MATE. It’s a solid Linux distro that really shines in its stability and usability. Today I’m sharing my top five reasons why I think you should consider using Ubuntu MATE as your goto Linux distro.


## Get Ubuntu MATE – https://ubuntu-mate.org/

# The Ubuntu base for those who might want a different desktop environment.

# Ubuntu MATE Welcome menu and the software boutique.

# Mutiny…or Panel Selector , actually. In the video, I called panel selector Mutiny when really, Mutiny is merely the Unity panel layout. Either way, the addition of the various layouts is indeed fantastic. I was tired and messed up the naming scheme. 🙂

# Ubuntu MATE control center. Simple, refined and easy to manage.

# So many indicators! Best of all, they work after upgrading to new versions of the desktop. Looking at you Gnome!
