There are several Linux distributions that support the MATE desktop including of course Ubuntu, and there is a dedicated Ubuntu MATE edition for this elegant desktop environment as well.
In this how-to guide, I will describe the simple steps for installation of the latest version of MATE desktop on Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 16.10 and Fedora 22-24.
The best Linux distro of 2016 simply arrived at the last moment.
If you have a rotational disk, then Fedora 25 will be a little slow to boot and there is nothing you or I can do to fix it.
Even when dealing with the various Wayland oddities and issues, Fedora 25 is a great distribution.
Everything is reasonably polished and the default software provides a functional desktop for those looking for a basic web browsing, e-mail, and word processing environment.
With Wayland, GNOME 3.22 and the excellent DNF package manager, I’m hard-pressed to think of anything missing. Fedora lacks an LTS release, but now that updating is less harrowing, that’s less of a concern.
It is under active development to bring about constant improvement using modern technologies, while holding to traditional desktop experience.Fedora 25 has been out for 2 months and it seems like a very solid release, maybe the best in the history of the distro.And feedback from the press and users has also been very positive.I took the time and put together a digest of the latest reviews: Phoronix: Fedora 25 Is Quite Possibly My Most Favorite Release Yet As a long-time Fedora fan and user going back to Fedora Core, Fedora 25 is quite possibly my most favorite Fedora release yet.With the state as of this week, it feels very polished and reliable and haven’t encountered any glaring bugs on any of my test systems.
