Now that these have been out for a while (and I'm assuming there are a few here who have jumped into them), perhaps we could discuss likes, dislikes, bugs and other stuff?
After getting time to actually play with Mate, I really like it. For the most part it seems to run pretty smooth, in some cases faster than when using regular 14.04 and Mint on this machine. I know there are graphics issues for some machines, but the images on mine seem good/very sharp. I also like how configurable it is out of the gate-haven't installed any extras other than BleachBit, some fonts, and the regular ubuntu xenial wallpapers to get that blue background I saw in a few other peoples screenshots.
The only hiccups I've run into are probably just bugs. There was one "system has crashed" message, but there didn't seem to be anything wrong. While playing around with some of the settings, some of them wouldn't save over a reboot, and some icons in the Mate panel would appear and disappear. Is this type of stuff typical on a first release?
The only real question I have is about the updates. After I installed and updated the first time, running apt-get update seems to be looking for way less things than I'm used to seeing:
Hit:1 http:security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-security InRelease
Hit:2 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial InRelease
Hit:3 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-updates InRelease
HIt:4 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial InRelease
HIt:5 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-backports InRelease
That's all that returns in terminal. Anyone else seeing anything similar?
Overall, I'm enjoying it very much. Looking forward to discussion.
