Been using Mate 1.16 from Stevo's OBS repo for a few weeks now and it's been great. If one decided to try it I would encourage you to use a Gtk theme that supports both Gtk2 and Gtk3 for best experience. Arc is one of those themes and looks great. I'm sure there are many more. If anyone else tests it out would love to hear your experience. Thanks Stevo for providing this excellent upgrade! :number1:

hi
interessing :)
Mate possed fast devloppment (no xfce, i think), and is most compatible with modern "graphical" technologies (Mesa, GTK3 of course, wayland...)
this "middle-old-environment" is the future on the day?
i don't no :happy:

old thread but thought I would chime in. using MATE 1.16.1 right now on Stretch. I'm using greenlaguna theme which looks good to me, along with MATE faenza icons. Both the desktop and Debian 9 are very solid. I still lean a bit more toward KDE and Xfce but MATE is a nice full featured DE.

Yeah, I went ahead and added MATE 16.1 for our own repos.
