UUMATE is a respin of Ubuntu Mate (https://ubuntu-mate.org/)
The main goal of this project is simple: Just have an updated Ubuntu Mate 64bit ready to install, with full multimedia support, compiz, many extra applications and some cosmetic changes. Many PPAs/Repos already available.
Event sounds (minimize, maximize, close, etc...) enabled by default you can enable/disable compiz using "mate-tweak"!
No need to download hundred megabytes after installation!
Note: To burn the ISO to a USB stick, use "dd" command. In MS Windows use Rufus.
This ISO is helpful for people trying to install linux for the first time or coming from windows environment. It has plenty of software pre installed (some are trial/shareware) with full internet and multimedia support. Very useful as live media as well.
It has audio/video codecs, flashplayer, java, googletalk, telegram, twitter, etc...

Loving this distro. When will you release a version based on 16.04? sergiosc, why isnt your 16.04? working? I enabled it but get 404 Not found error
That's it then, it looks like my distrohopping days are over. Uumate is awesome and complete. Might be too big for some but for me it's just what I've been looking for for my HP laptop and believe me, I tried many and got disappointed by big & popular distros. Nice balance between eyecandy and useful programs. I hope this project remains alive and keeps getting better.
