Mubuntu Is a remix of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS featuring MATE instead of Unity. MATE is a Fork of the Gnome2 Code with a LOT of great stuff Added. Mubuntu 1.0 was created using remastersys, however, the GIT repo has the Live FS in it, for further improvement and recompiling. My intention at this point is to base my future releases around the LTS versions of Ubuntu as the ammount of work required to reconfigure the OS with MATE takes a lot of time to do. Im not sure at this point if i want to make Mubuntu into an Official for like kubuntu/lubuntu etc... only time will tell, but at this point im planning to base my version numbers independant of ubuntu's (so not base around like 12.04, 12.10 etc) like the linux mint project. If you have any interest in joing me in development i would be happy for the help!
Hi, My name is Brett Wiley, I am a Ubuntu MATE Remix team member. I have started working on Ubuntu MATE Remix with Martin Wimpress (MATE Desktop developer) and Alan Pope (Canonical Enginering Manager). Would you like to join our team, so we can all work together and try to get Ubuntu MATE Remix "blessed" as an official Ubuntu flavour? Let me know you thoughts.
