    Any chance of a Ubuntu MATE remix coming out?

    I am familiar with Ubuntu and Linux in general (to a certain degree), I, like many other experienced users do not like Unity and I personally like the MATE project because I am familiar with GNOME2 ( IDon't even like Gnome classic), so my question is, will an official ( community based mate remix come out?, I can do part of that project
    Thanks

    I still don't like how Mint tries to hijack search in web browsers. But it's quite easy to fix. And now that Debian adopted Gnome 3, Mint is indeed the lesser evil.

    Weren't they supposed to be avoiding Ubuntu ( = based directly on Debian) by now?

    I don't recall that except in the case of LMDE
    Everything else seems to be in tune with the Ubuntu releases and you can use Ubuntu PPA's

    It leaves a whole lot of unused dependencies and even if I remove unity, there will still be unused useless dependencies

    You could do a minimal ubuntu install: http://blog.lifebloodnetworks.com/?p=1280

    If you want MATE out of the box I'd recommend linux mint. the upcoming mint 15 should have a mate edition with mate 1.6 out of the box.

    Don't like gnome shell, mint is good, but I want a look and feel like gnome 2 based Ubuntu versions by using the mate desktop
