    Mate is based on the Gnome 2 desktop like 10.04 had and this is a Ubuntu remix . http://sourceforge.net/projects/ubuntumate/

    But what's the difference really? Except for Unity still being on the harddrive with it's standard features and packages?

    @ zencoder; sorry I missed you post .
    You are in all likely hood not set up at this time to start the GUI with "startx";
    try:
    Code:
    startxfce4
    see from my sig -> NewDocs -> install ->minimal
    There is an abundance of information in respect to a "minimal" install .. just be aware ..'buntu is very dynamic and old info may no longer apply.
    What kernel version, Desktop Environment, and Desktop Manager (if any, I don't) is currently installed matters !

    it is all a process of learning
    THE current(cy) in Documentation:

    Happy ubutu'n !
