I actually find Lubuntu much more to my liking than Xubuntu, more importantly I don't think there can be too many options.
I do a lot of testing - because it beats the heck out of building jigsaw puzzles or playing games - and I find that after I use almost any DE, such as Unity or Gnome Shell, I actually find myself missing some features when I change to a different DE
If I were smart enough I'd build a fork of this:
For sure a fork of Metacity, and that version of Gnome panel, but with the PCManFM file manager ...... and an absolute minimum of installed apps, with options to install the preferred apps sort of like Puppy does
But I'm not smart enough, and I'm just old enough I get dumber every day, so I test and tweak
Just thought to add, I don't quite understand the need to fork some of the apps Mate has chosen to. I understand the need to fork Metacity, Gnome panel + applets, and even Nautilus ......... but why fork Eye of Gnome, Evince, and Gedit?
That list is incomplete but I'd prefer seeing as little duplication of apps as possible
MATE's moved one step closer to being included in the Debian and Ubuntu repos, with a Fix Committed status in Debian packaging:
Now, considering that the Debian import freeze for Ubuntu Raring (13.04) is February 14th, I have doubts that the MATE DE will be included in Raring.
But having performed iso-testing since Hardy I'd guess that they may be there in 13.10 ...... almost certainly by 14.04. But my time machine is broken so I could be all wet
