is a fork of the popular, but now unmaintained, GNOME2 desktop environment. MATE is under active development to add support for new technologies while preserving the traditional GNOME desktop experience and its many built-in utilities. Figure 6.1a shows a screenshot of Mate on a PC-BSD® 10.0 system with the "Applications" menu open.
Each category in the "Applications" menu contains many applications and the "Settings" and "System" categories contain many utilities for configuring your system.
