    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

    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

    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.

    Don't think so, as it is a dead DE, with no future, just like kde3.

    I'd be surprised if there aren't 20 mate based ubuntus out there already.

    But then again, mate seems to be the kind of desktop that if you were so desperate to run, you probably just build it yourself.
