Been running Ubuntu-MATE for about 6 months now and it's far exceeded my expectations. I love knowing that it's not calling home every 2 seconds. I love it's well thought out GUI. I love the power of it's CLI. It's not perfect but it's closer than the alternative. I suppose I should thank the steaming pile of shit called Windows 10 for finally making me get to know and appreciate Linux for what it is. MS can KMA. I'm vnever looking back. btw, I'm in the process of building a Dually Linux system. Stand by for pics and details.
