Ubuntu MATE is a free and open source Linux distribution and an official derivative of Ubuntu. Its main differentiation from Ubuntu is that it uses the MATE desktop environment as its default user interface, based on GNOME 2 which was used for Ubuntu versions prior to 11.04, instead of the Unity graphical shell that is the default user interface for the Ubuntu desktop.[1]

The Ubuntu MATE project was founded by Martin Wimpress and Alan Pope[2] and began as an unofficial derivative of Ubuntu, using an Ubuntu 14.10 base for its first release;[3] a 14.04 LTS release followed shortly.[4] As of February 2015, Ubuntu MATE gained the official Ubuntu flavour status from Canonical Ltd. as per the release of 15.04 Beta 1.[5][6] In addition to IA-32 and x86-64 which were the initial supported platforms, Ubuntu MATE also supports PowerPC[7] and ARMv7 (on the Raspberry Pi 2).[8]

In April 2015, Ubuntu MATE announced a partnership with British computer reseller Entroware, enabling customers of the latter to purchase desktop and laptop computers with Ubuntu MATE preinstalled with full support.[9]
