Ubuntu MATE

Ubuntu MATE is a stable, easy-to-use operating system with a configurable desktop environment. It is ideal for those who want the most out of their computers and prefer a traditional desktop metaphor. With modest hardware requirements it is suitable for modern workstations, single board computers and older hardware alike. Ubuntu MATE makes modern computers fast and old computers usable.

It's been my"goto" desktop since I started using Linux. I play around with other distros( and many of them are also very nice) but UM 18.04LTS is my daily driver because it just works. I have access to all the common apps that an "office" desktop user would need.

Ubuntu Mate combines quality of Ubuntu and traditional desktop experience of Mate. That makes me feel at home with it.

I have tried many other distros over the years, but I always come back to Ubuntu MATE, it's my OS home, and although it's not perfect, improvements are literally happening every day

If you want something that just works and looks good out of the box, 3 years on the same install and no issues

I've deployed hundreds of desktops and notebooks at my company, with only slight adjustments to the skel file, with Ubuntu-Mate. For my users, it has a good familiar user interface - I deploy the Redmond desktop. It is stable and easily managed singularly via ssh or collectively via saltstack. It can also look like a very professional and corporate operating system with a customized sign on page - another minor skel file mod. Caja, the file manager, is easy to work with and Samba shares can quickly be mapped even from an MS file server. I've found Caja much more user friendly for end users especially when mapping file shares than the dolphin file manager. I have tested many distros for use in a corporate environment and Ubuntu-Mate is still the best choice in my opinion. I like it so much I use it on my personal notebook.

A sane desktop for traditional desktop PCs. Emerging support for UMPC devices. Supports Raspberry Pi (with a headless option) which is great for prototyping IoT devices. You can run it on servers to provision cloud-based workstations. Solid all-rounder.

I'm using it on about 10 personal devices at home and at work. Also I run 150 fat clients with LTSP server in two buildings. System is stable, fast and reliable. User-experience is the most stable while using LTS versions (as it is not based on GNOME sHell) and configurable (have traditional desktop as it was in GNOME 2.32 but with modern applications; also has modern Unity-like and macOS-like with global menus). The IoT part - for example Bluetooth is supported with Blueman and other utilities; Wi-Fi works out the box.

This is the most usable desktop environment. Based on decades of research and development in usability from the original GNOME desktop, instead of throwing all that out in the chase for shiny, it has been modernized while retaining the same solidly usable interface.
