Mate is based on the Gnome 2 desktop like 10.04 had and this is a Ubuntu remix . http://sourceforge.net/projects/ubuntumate/
This is Xubuntu. You can easily set it up anyway you want to...

if your gonna go go, but plenty of decent classic desktops are available.
lots have been offered, or goggle for more
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";
see from my sig -> NewDocs -> install ->minimalCode:startxfce4
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 !
